Fans of the Yes Minister TV show will immediately understand if you refer to it as "pulling a Sir Humphrey". Some examples: aadithyakv.com/blog/sir-humphreys-longest-sentences

comment What is it called when single letters are used as words in a sentence?
The examples under "reverse mondegreen" on Wikipedia are pretty nonsensical when not spoken aloud, I think, although they might have gotten the definition wrong. I definitely agree that this is a rebus; I just think RM better captures the seeming nonsensicalness and the solution of the puzzle (to speak it out).
