Word Play

I’m on holiday all weekend. All communications related to work will be ignored until Monday.

Writers love word play. Observe following conversation outside the theatre for Harry Potter & The OotP last night.

Me: [looks over the waiting shoulder-to-shoulder crowd as cinema regurgitates contents] Crap.
Andrea: Ketam!

[insane giggling]

Me: What’s “Holy crap?”
Andrea: Ketam suci!

[more insane giggling]

I feel a sudden urge to erect the Shrine of the Holy Crab/Crap.
