Oh, Those Homophones

Seen on the sidewalk while taking the day's first walk with William.


  1. I don't get it..

  2. Sorry, Anonymous, but I found this so deliciously funny that, after delivering William back home, I walked back to where I'd seen this bag out on the sidewalk to snap a picture of it.

    Homophones are words that sound alike but are spelled differently. Written on this bag is the message: "Free lightly worn close." The last word should have been "clothes"--articles of clothing--but instead what's written is the verb "close"--the opposite of "open."

  3. easy to confuse 'homophones' and homophobes', much in the news lately.
