    Best pun ever, by C. S. Lewis, quoted from here:

    Over dinner one night at Magdalen College one of the courses was haggis, the national dish of Scotland, which consists mainly of the blood and intestines of sheep. Seated next to Lewis was a visiting Portuguese dignitary who, while eating his haggis, remarked that he felt like a “gastronomic Columbus.” “Surely you mean a vascular da Gama,” said Lewis.
