Clever Turns of Phrase

I have received several emails over the last ten or twelve years designed to bring a laugh with a twist on the expected or a clever use of words. Today I reread this one.

I’m not 40-something. I’m $39.95 plus shipping and handling

Since we just recently moved into our own home after 40-something years of living in furnished parsonages, we have done a lot of ordering, so take my word for it: S&H is much more than $.05 on $40!

A person in my age bracket can even get in on this nowadays. How about this?
For today only, if you call in the next 10 minutes, I am not 60 something. I'm 39 plus S&H.

What's your take? Can you suggest a different variation?
