(Reclaimed from Bubblews, where this was one of four collections of ten puns I posted on January 17, 2014, as suggested by the Washington Post Style Invitational:
These puns commemorate places and people around Washington, D.C., as suggested in the Invitation:
Shaky Grove: Metrorail terminus suffers earthquake.
Washington Tikes: Afternoon newspaper for small children and dogs.
Kill McKinley: Instructions to the hitman.
Jakes Monroe: Start of an alarming trend in naming restrooms.
James Mad Ikon: Putin reports vision in which saint's image chastises him for suppressing international news reporters.
U.K. Grant: In the event of a Confederate victory the Union general, having already changed his name twice, planned to move to England...
Ruther Fork Hayes: Barely literate laborer applies for promotion from muck-shovelling job.
Herbert Hooker: Arrested during his first hour on 14th & T Streets, the businessman pleaded temporary insanity induced by heavy losses in the stock market.
Jimmy Carker: Author of protest literature, known for his frown.
Keggy Cafritz: Instead of using family foundation money for good causes such as wheelchair access, the degenerate heir squandered it on beer.
