Beyond my Ken

I wonder how many ways there are to work a play on a famous person’s name into a sentence. Here are some examples:

“Desi wasn’t as famous as Lucy, but he still had a Ball.”

“If Glenn isn’t the greatest Hollywood actress, she is Close.”

“Everything written by the author of The Iliad wasn’t just a hit. It was a Homer.”

“Stephen is not merely our greatest writer of horror, he is King.”

“Lucy ruled the set on Xena, even though she was Lawless.”

“After Shelley left Cheers, it continued as a hit TV show, but not for Long.”

“Nobody can say bad things about Freddy Mercury, but Brian May.”

“Taylor was our fastest rising pop star because she was Swift.”

“Neil may be an aging rock god, but he will always be Young.”
