“My gran’s collection of antique gravy boats were Bistoed upon me”

Bisto is a well-known brand of gravy. It should not be confused with “bestow,” but there are jokes.

“My gran’s collection of antique gravy boats were Bistoed upon me #1PUN” was posted on Twitter by Lord Kiel on February 24, 2016. “When working in catering, the award for best gravy maker was bisto-ed on me #1PUN” was posted on Twitter by Neil Wellington on March 22, 2016. “I see the inventor of gravy granules has had the freedom of the city bisto-ed on him” was posted on Twitter by Robert Wilkinson on November 7, 2021.
