When Not In Rome, Try One Of These ...


I ran across the phrase "When in Palindrome, do as the Palindromans" and that
was enough incentive to try to exhaust the genre, as is my wont. Here are a
few of my better ones, all puns intended:

When in Autumn, do as the Ottomans.
When in a Chord E, do as the Accordians.
When in Drag, do as the Dragons.
When in Fahrvergnug, do as the Fahrvergnugens.
When Infirm, do as the Furmans.
When it's Friday, do as the Freudians.
When in Fur Boat, do as the Verbotens.
When with High Bernie, do as the Hibernians.
When in Oh Really, do as the Aurelians.
When in Oise, do as the Wazoos.
When in Pawns-Ideally, do as the Ponce de Leons.
When in Pee, do as the Peons.
When in Serge, do as the Surgeons.
When on the Verge, do as the Virgins.
