Puns and Cliches

“Where would you like to go?” Jane asked.

“Hmm, hell in a handbasket?” replied Michael.

“Ha ha, Mike. Seriously, we need to decide where to go for supper!”

“Well, it’s a fine kettle of fish we’re in then, isn’t it?”

“Oh not this again.”

“Sorry, didn’t mean to talk your ear off.”


“Why don’t you kill two birds with one stone, and just decide for us?”

“Can you stop with the clichés?”

“I could, but that would be a whole new ballgame.”

“Yeah, well, I’m getting mad as a wet hen right now.”

“And I’m happy as a clam!”

“Michael, seriously, what about Chez Miguel?”

“Not to beat around the bush, but I’m not too keen on there again.”

“Okay…maybe Thyme?”

“They’re probably all booked, it’d be an uphill battle to get in.”

“What about Jamie’s Bistro, then?”

“Hmm, that’s a possibility, though we don’t want to go off half-cocked.”

“Do you have any other suggestions?”

“Ooh! I know it will set your teeth on edge, but what about the Olde Bakery and Restaurant?”

“Yeah, I could do that. Are you really keen on eating there?”

“I think it sounds delicious. And you can have some cake and eat it too!”

“Then let’s go!”

“Great! Sounds like a marriage made in heaven!”

“Okay, Michael, you can stop.”
