The Focus Ranch: Where the sons raise meat. or, where the sun's rays meet.

Taken blatantly from the puzzle guy on NPR. Can anyone else come up with another one?(Tau, I'm thinking of you, mostly. )

The only thing that comes to mind for this is the cross-dressing priest who fell into a bad habit.

Shouldn't be too hard as there are lots of punable words that have both verb and noun meanings. Tricky part is managing subject/verb agreement...

There once was a man named Frank Lee. Frank, like all young men, wanted to be a playwrite, but couldn't support himself on a playwrite's wages. So he got a job for a mail order catalog specializing in furniture, livestock and automobiles to support himself until he got established as a writer.

Frank Lee mails urn, hens, a ford to right place; because frankly, males earn, hence afford to write plays.

Woohoo, seven puns in one sentence!!!!! Yeah, I know it's pretty weak... I would have liked to found a solution to the grammatical problems in the first clause.

Okay, it's 1:30 am here, and I've spent the last hour working that out.
