    The interesting thing about all this is how it demonstrates accents and so pronunciation.  For instance, I would never think "whale" and "wail" were the same word or "where" and "were".

    @fpherj48  Lol! tics came up with a great idea to blow the mental cobwebs away; what a fun little game. No doubt someone out there will be thinking, " Right! I'll have him! " as they're feverishly scouting for a hundred words to make us look knee-high to a grasshopper..." Don't do it peeps! It's just for FUN " lol!
    Have a great evening smile
