Bruited about over lunch: an idea for a reality TV show ordered around zeugmas. Contestants would be timed as they carry out various tasks which have nothing in common except being grammatical complements of the same verb. Round one: drive a golf ball, a nail, a tractor, and your partner to drink. Round two: get hired, fired, high, laid, and the measles. Round three: kill half an hour, a six-pack, and at least one of the judges. And so on.
