The problem with homophone puns in a written medium is that you have to hide them by using the other spelling until ready to reveal the pun.
If Higgs had said, "Nay, but I been Thai-in' a lamb shank!" it would make more sense, but give away the joke.
Thai curry lamb shanks, by the way, are awesome. A restaurant near me made them, and oh my goodness they were good. Unfortunately that restaurant closed down a while ago, and I haven't found a Thai place as good yet.
