Decent fish pun on real swing bandleader Tommy Dorsey (1905–1956), from the pun-stuffed, noir parody short story "Gone Fission," by Gary Gentile, in the Fall 1989 issue of SCUBAPRO Diving and Snorkeling magazine.

"Don't hand me the Shake-and-Bake. I don't scare easily. Just get him over here. Tell him Mike Hammerhead wants to sea him." Mike tossed some swordfish bills on the bar, and pointed at the singers floundering behind the microphone. "And get rid of that sole music. Bring on the Tommy Dorsal band."
