If you have not experienced > homonyms and homophones before consider:- Oh absolutely but I was just thinking about the use of the word gas particularly as i've been thinking about LPG conversions recently. Funniest one I hear was when I was on a train in San Francisco and the lady conductor announced:- "No smoking is permitted throughout the train". I was really pleased to hear that but what I was going to then ask was whether I was permitted to smoke! (I don't but I wanted to ask anyway just to see her confused look). David.
