Creative Phraseology with Yahoo

SUBJECT: If I hop in the shower, am I turning into a rabbit?

I made an accidental but entertaining discovery today; clicking on the subject button when writing a Yahoo e-mail will generate a random and amusing phrase in the subject line of the e-mail. Many of these phrases succeed in being humorous thanks to the writer's creative use of morphology and semantics.

Here are a few that I enjoyed:

Cinco de Mayonnaise
Shake it, don't break it, took your mama 9 months to make it.
Cannibals are what they eat
this body is slowing and my mind is reverse growing
Did you say Yute? What's a Yute?
cycling over melons
Some Powdered Muffin with your Starfish, Dr Arbuckle?
My dog eats nuts
Pressing business at the dry cleaners
Save some funk for Sunday
Alarming drop-out rate of sky diving classes
My mono isn't getting could turn into stereo

I would love to know who writes these so I could thank them/him/her for not recycling boring old catch phrases.

Thanks to Toothpaste for Dinner for the great cartoon.

Very cute! I guess that's what I miss out on by not having Yahoo email.

I love Toothpaste and his equally funny wife Natalie Dee! I always borrow their comics in my blog too...
