Shoplifter: "Has to pilfer"
Husband and wife: "Fun was had in bed"
and one for The Dean:
I have a large penis: "He is plain average"

Here are some for regular BE posters:

Madam Medusa: "Madam amused", "A Mamma's Dude" or "A dam mad muse"!

Blue Cat: "Tea club", "Cat lube" or "Lace but".

Matahari: "Maria hat", "A hair mat" or "Tiara ham"

Paidtoplease: "A pale deposit", "A polite spade" or "Dies to appeal".

Inselaffen: "Elf fannies", "Sniff an eel", "Feline fans" or "Nae sniffles" (Scottish for no sniffles)

Lady Lou: "A dull yo" or a "Loud lay".

IndieGirl: "Rigid line", "I ring idle" "Grin, I lied"

Twinkle-star: "Stalker twin", "Raw tent silk", "A strewn kilt" or "Straw tinkle". The last one is a painful urological condition according to the Uxbridge dictionary (aka I'm sorry I haven't a clue).
