OK... what's the name for that word-play that assigns the same verb to a 
string of disparate things...

"That depends, sir, on whether I embrace your mistress or your 
principles."  Or more commonly, some string of 3 or so of which the last 
is amusingly out of register with the rest.

Drat!

Anyone remember?

Ta, L.  Aphasic tonight.
