The name of my attorney is Susan Jones. I sometimes refer to her as Sue the Lawyer.

I think even that one's stretching the term 'pun' a bit. Splintered / splendid, don't sound the same at all, surely. As for some of the others quoted in this thread, no way are they puns. e.g. Stuck inside of Memphis in a mobile home is a deliberate misquote intened to demonstrate that Mr Eldritch knows his Dylan (and possibly more complex allusory significance).

Is the quote, that he wears that ring, "to keep the flies off" matching with your high quality pun norm, Francis?

easy.......

Now that the moribund relationship with East West Records is officially over, it seemed reasonable to bang out a few singles - independently - while we're putting an album together (which usually takes a long time) and getting somebody to put it out with a bit of muscle (which usually takes even longer).

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been waiting for that one. Mr. Green Close enough I suppose.

I know I'm a bit late but couldn't the pun be that he is stuck (ie can't move) when the actual home is described as mobile?
