Double Meanings

Through an acquaintance with literature one can learn to appreciate the ironic and often humorous art of double meanings. A recent commercial example of a double meaning in action is VISA's use of the word "take" in its current ad campaign.
A recent and more serious literary example is the title of Brian Vaughan and Niko Henrichon's graphic novel, Pride of Baghdad

Take that, monosemous literalism!
