Default That's Amore

I cannot resist... well, I can, but I won't... this recent Mornington Crescent romp. We apologise for the title. The content is rather more respectable. Like all group art, it's variable in quality, but there are some cracking lines.

My favourites:

When a bloody great eel wraps itself round your keel, that's a Moray

In a tall office block, each new floor that you clock, that's a storey

If your business is risky and Rebecca is frisky, that's De Mornay.

If it's metal, and thin, and it turns, and you're in - it's a door-key (even though it doesn't rhyme...)

If you're in Paradise and that girl looks quite nice, she's a houri

If your silks coincide making patterns that glide, that's a moiré

If that Brit on TV speaks Americanly, that's Hugh Laurie.

A couple I composed on the drive home from work. I think they work best if they share with the original a 'When' at the beginning and a 'that's' near the end ...

When it used to be mean, but now it's turning green, that's a Tory...

When in the ice-cream shop, and your knickers are bocked, that's a glory...

My fave. It was a bit frustrating thinking of rhymes and then seeing them used though!

I just had a go myself, now I'm going to go look... this is what I came up with...

When it’s in the right place there’s a smile on your face, that’s good Feng shui (pronounced, foong shway, ya know!)

When a birthday gift sux but can raise a few bucks, it’s on ebay

Thanks JS, I can't stop myself now. Who started this? (scrolling up) Here are a few more...


If she starts to cry because she’ll soon die, you say she’s fey

Is it a horse? You know it, of course, if it says ‘neigh’.

When your bones are aglow and your insideson show, it’s an x-ray
