Eating an orange
While making love
Makes for bizarre enj-
Oyment thereof

-Attributed to Tom Lehrer

(only works if you're from the Northeast, I think)

A few more in that spirit:


The legless Scotman's in my chamber.
You shall know him by his lame burr.

(with "hypallage")


With gold and silver
I bought the will of her.
