Close But No Cigar

You know, not everything goes together as well as peanut butter and jelly. And sometimes bad combinations can be made from things that sound similar. A few came to mind:

Driving Range and Driving Rain
Running Bear and Running Water
A Hot Date and a Hot Dog
Breaking Bread and Breaking Wind
Ken and Rich

Can you think of any others?

Welcome back from the land of fruits and nuts.

Here are some off of the top of my mind:

Contrary to the Brady Bunch, Pork Chops and Applesauce aren't really that great together.

Meatball and Hairball... not good.

Idiots and Idiot Savants... ugly

Liberals and a conscience stream of thought: very messy.

Rocky Mountain Springs and Rocky Mountain Oysters
Boy friend and Boy George
black tires and black tar
tooth brush and tooth decay
counting your blessings and counting sheep
Ken and Rich

I'm in full support of this post, btw.

my faves:
Dead On -> Dead On Arrival
Pumping Gas -> Having Gas (this really made me laugh! And Ariel a fish-wife? LOLOLOL)
