It’s time for some more homophones! If you don’t now what homophone is, it’s a word that is pronounced the same way as another word with a different meaning, such carat and carrot. What I’m doing isn’t quite like that but similar. It’s inspired by the long running, comedy radio show I’M SORRY I HAVEN’T A CLUE and its UXBRIDGE ENGLISH DICTIONARY. A few months ago I listed a bunch of new and improved definitions to existing words (you can find them here) and I’m back with a new crop of meanings and punnery. Enjoy!
