I'm trying to find a reference for a type of joke. I mean, I'd like to know what these are called or find a list of them somewhere. The "jokes" (and I use that in the loosest sense of the word), are just statements that are supposed to be funny based on the adjective in the attribution at the end.

For example:

"This cow is out of milk," he uttered.

Or something like that. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

It' s form of a pun isn't it? I believe that they are sometimes called "Tom Swifties". Or a homophonic pun?

"I hate Chablis," Tom whined.

That kind of thing.

Yes, most of my knowledge is of the useless variety.

Thanks, Doug.

How about:

Great link Doug. they really take it to the max on that site;

"This blood-sucking insect likes French cheese," said Tom briefly."

What warped mind came up with that!!!
