Source: Tom Swifties Adverbial Puns
Who knew this list existed? There are some good Tom Swifties and then there are others:
“I’ve been a baaaa-d boy,” said Tom sheepishly.
Remember, these are the dialogue equivalent of a double-negative in grammar. So never use them in writing unless you mean to write puns intentionally. This comprises a good list of the dreaded -ly adverbs to be avoided in dialogue tags too.
“Those cobs are amazing!” said Tom cornily.
I rest my case. Enjoy!
“His Honor is crazy,” Tom stated judgementally.
(Well, maybe just one more. 😉 )
