Tom Swifties

"Six is a special number," Tom said perfectly.

"1, 3, 5, 7, 9,..." said Tom oddly.

"1/2 is a fraction," said Tom properly.

"Square root of two is not equal to a/b," noted Tom irrationally.

"The concavity changes here," said Tom with inflection.

"99 is almost 100," said Tom roughly.

Note: Can you or your students come up with some two Tom Swifties? Please send them if you do.......
