Sorry, no jokes in this message, but a request for some.  I am looking for
examples of humor that take advantage of two words' synonymy.  Can anyone
think of anything off-hand?  Since it's not strictly dialect-based, you
should probably reply directly to me, but perhaps if it's a really good
joke others will forgive you if you post it to the list.
