Lexophile (2014)

Posted on: März 16, 2014

„Lexophile“ is a word used to describe those that have a love for words, such as „you can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna  fish“, or „to write with a broken pencil is pointless.“

A competition to see who can come up with the best lexphillies is held every year. This year’s winning submissions are posted below; the apparent winner is posted at the very end.

. When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

. A thief who stole a calendar got twelve  months.

. When the smog lifts in Los Angeles  U.C.L.A.

. The batteries were given out free of  charge.


. A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

. A will is a dead giveaway.

. With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

. A boiled egg is hard to beat.


. When you’ve seen one shopping center you’ve seen a mall.

. Police were called to a day care center where a 3-year-old was resisting arrest.

. Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.


. A bicycle can’t stand alone;  it is two tired.

. When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

. The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.


. He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

. When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she’d dye.

. Acupuncture is a jab well done. That’s the point of it.


And the very cream of the crop:

. Those who get too big for their pants will be exposed in the end.
