Weekly Dose Post #126

This is stuff I found while browsing the net. Check back every Monday for more…

Joke of the Week:

English can sometimes be a confusing language. Homographs are words that have the same spelling but are pronounced differently and have different meanings. Here’s some examples:

♦ The bandage was wound around the wound.

 She didn’t mean to be mean.

♦ We must polish the Polish furniture.

♦ Now seems like a good time to present the present.

 I did not object to the object.

♦ The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

♦ They were too close to the door to close it.

 The buck does funny things when the does are present.

♦ The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

♦ Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

Weird Fact of the Week:

James Buchanan was the only President of the United States who remained a bachelor.

Quote of the Week:

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.” – Nelson Mandela
