Ah! What's known as a "Tom Swifty" -- here are more than you can probably stand, grabbed from the Wikipedia page. (I know about these because, in writing fiction, it's best not to include some such thing accidentally and to do it very, very carefully if it's intended.) HPH

"I'll have a martini," said Tom, drily (dryly).
"Who left the toilet seat down?" Tom asked peevishly.
"Pass me the shellfish," said Tom crabbily.
"That's the last time I'll stick my arm in a lion's mouth," the lion-tamer said off-handedly.
"Can I go looking for the Grail again?" Tom requested.
"I unclogged the drain with a vacuum cleaner," said Tom succinctly.
"I might as well be dead," Tom croaked.
"We just struck oil!" Tom gushed.
"It's freezing," Tom muttered icily.
"They had to amputate them both at the ankles," said Tom defeatedly.
"I wonder if this radium is radioactive?" asked Marie curiously.
"The Battle of the Nile? A lot of fun!" said Lord Nelson disarmingly.
"Hurry up and get to the back of the ship!" Tom said sternly.
"We could have made a fortune canning pineapples" Tom groaned dolefully.
"I wish I drove a Scandinavian car" Tom sobbed (Saabed).
"Careful with that chainsaw". Tom said offhandedly.
"I'm here", Tom said presently.
"Happy Birthday" Tom said presently.
"Walk this way" Tom said stridently.
"I stole the gold" Tom confessed giltily.
"Bingo" Tom exclaimed winningly.
"I used to be a criminal pilot" he ex-plained con-descendingly.
"I have no flowers," Tom said lackadaisically.
"I know not which groceries to purchase," Tom said listlessly.
