This looks like one successful supermarket outing — pun-wise, at least.

Fresh from their glory at the Rio Paralympic Games, Singapore swimming greats Yip Pin Xiu and Theresa Goh were at the supermarket, when they got into a round of quick-fire punning.

"You know what I'd say if I wanted my mum (named Rose) to hold on? I'd say Waitrose," says Goh, filming Yip's reaction.

"When you get restless, do you get...Fiji-ty?" she says, with Fiji water in the frame.

It appears Goh uploaded each one to her Instagram Stories, where she posts as @wheelie_wonka. (Yup.)

"When you get restless, do you get...Fiji-ty?"

Uploading the entire collection to Facebook later, Goh clearly couldn't resist including a final pun in her caption, either. "We were on a rolllll," she said, of her fellow wheelchair-bound buddy, adding #lameathletes #literally in the hashtags. Brutal.

Yip took home two gold medals at the Rio Games, making it Singapore's third Paralympic gold in history. (She won the last one in Beijing as well, by the way.)

Goh grabbed the bronze in Rio as well, setting the Asian record for the 100m breaststroke.

It's clear after this video that swimming isn't the only thing these two ladies are amazing at.
