Acronyms and Oronyms

UK - BBC. US - HBO. I get neither. But thanks to DVR and DVDRW I get shows thru' USPS.

In other words my parents just sent me the Extras Christmas Special on DVD and I watched it last night.

To be honest, it could use a few more jokes, however any show that contains the line, "Oh fuck off, I'm Clive Owen, that's mental", is OK in my book.

The funniest joke in the show is an oronym.

It's only an oronym (homophone) in England. You won't confuse Fish Stew and Fist You in the US.

I chose oronym instead of homophone, because frankly, homophone is just too easy a joke. What's a homophone? Make up your own answer.
