Zeugma: You keep on learning

I just came across this word in a crossword. Having no idea what it meant I was delighted to find out; especially the examples from literature, entertainment and song in the article. The Flanders and Swann song being one of my favourites anyway. 

However I’m not clever enough to come up with a zeugma of my own. 

Perhaps you are?https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeugma_and_syllepsis#Definition
