Classic Pun

It was suggested to a distinguished gourmet, what a capital thing a

dish all fins (turbot's fins) might be made. "Capital," said he; "dine

with me on it to-morrow." "Accepted." Would you believe it? when the

cover was removed, the sacrilegious dog of an Amphytrion had put into

the dish "Cicero De finibus" "There is a work all fins," said he.
