"That doctor is a fink!" Tom quacked.

They're doing Tom Swiftys on I've Got A Secret! Some good ones are

Betsy Palmer: "I love clams," she said shellfishly. I wish I had a clip of this because she is adorable when she turns her head and laughs sheepishly. :lol:

Henry Morgan: "My feet hurt," he said flatly. "Oh, do they?" she said archly.

What's My Line staff: "I'm the plumber," he piped. Also, he said with a flush. "I'm a burlesque dancer," she revealed. "My girdle's too tight," she snapped.

That was a fun segment.

I watched that episode of I've Got A Secret where they did Tom Swifties. I forgot about this thread!

"Look at that rocket!" he boomed.

And now, for the special five-for-one deluxe international travel collection :D:

"Don't let me drown in Egypt!" pleaded Tom, deep in denial.
"I've just been deported from China," said Tom, disoriented.
"These Paris streets sure have funny names," said Tom ruefully.
South Korea has a lovely capital city," said Tom soulfully.

And finally,

"I'm from Brussels," Tom sprouted.

"I think this movie will be very popular," Tom projected.

"Let's phone mother," Tom called.
