    This one came to me while driving & listening to the radio: Cruz (the candidate) / Cruze (the Chevy he might drive) / cruise (how he might relax when the race is over) / crews (the people who run the party barge).

    This word pair has been used going back to the early days of this game, in 2007, but I was told a little homophone-inspired joke yesterday, and thought it was worth repeating here:

    There's a campaign going on to abolish pre-shredded cheese. Its slogan?
    Make America Grate Again.

    Am reading City of Bones by Michael Connelly. It contains this request for a cop to go look at a bone someone's dog dug up:

    "So could you humor us and go check out this humerus?"

    IDK about you but I think about this game when homophones arise IRL.

    Same here, badger. I make a note when I think of one, or run across an example in a book, but almost always find it's been used - like hoar / whore, inspired by your war / wore.
