The intention is to get a double pun, though a single pun suffices.

Start with a word, and make a definition for it. The aim is for the first word to be spoken aloud, then the twist to come in either a rhyme or an alliteration.

Example one:

A "hornet" is of course a tramp trap

Example two:

"Tylenol" is restorin' floorin'

A double pun is a bit trickier to pull off, and the example I have is not really one I want to post here.

Determines is...

... an attempt to stop explosive booby traps, or
... what you have when you run over a pair of short-tailed weasels

Like the ermine ref, that's a hard to find subject.
