A twist on my previous puzzle So many anagrams. Instead of finding anagrams for the blanks you have to find two homophones/homographs(bat-bat, and doe-dough) that fit into the provided blanks. Note: The number of blanks does not mean the number of letters and there will be a different set of hompphones for each numbered sentence


  1. Donny started to _____ up when he saw that there was a _____ in his leather seats.

  2. Mike took his _____ on a date to the ______.

  3. After an _____ course meal, Joe figured that he ______ enough!

  4. He was wishing that his ______ would ______, because he wanted to start playing soccer again.

  5. Because the ________ was flat, it was a perfect spot to land their _______.

  6. After bathing their pet ______ the drain was full of ______.

  7. They _____ed the couch through the ____.

  8. Talking ______ is not _________.

  9. They went through the _____ _____ and got lost while trying to get out.

  10. To be more efficient in landscaping our yard we worked in ____s. First we _____d the ____ tree so it would not look so bushy, then we cut the grass.

  11. Ally only went to the shoe-stores that had a wide variety of _______, and after she was done shopping, she knew _______ she was going to ______ all the shoes.

  12. _____ days ago, I wanted to do a trick shot ____ my turn, so I swung as had as I could but the ball was about to hit my coach, so I screamed _____!

    $\begingroup$ Are you sure these are all homophones? It looks like #1 may be a homograph (same spelling, different sound and meaning) instead. Or I may be thinking of the wrong answer. $\endgroup$ – Pugmonkey Apr 21 '18 at 20:22

    $\begingroup$ Hmmm remember what happened last time you did "So many anagrams?" It seems like things have calmed down a bit...lol $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 21 '18 at 20:57
  • $\begingroup$ Oh. I just spent a good ten minutes trying, and utterly failing, to solve this, until I finally gave up in exasperation and looked at the accepted answer. Turns out it was the instructions that were misleading—you don’t have to find two homophones/homographs (one pair), but twenty-seven (twelve sets of two or three each, one set per sentence). I was desperately trying to find one single pair of homophones or homographs that would fit all twelve sentences. :-/ $\endgroup$ – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 22 '18 at 8:46

    $\begingroup$ Also, one of the three in #12 is neither a homophone nor a homograph with the others. It’s both spelt and pronounced differently (in this context) than the other two. $\endgroup$ – Janus Bahs Jacquet Apr 22 '18 at 8:52

    $\begingroup$ #3 should be "eight" and "had eaten" $\endgroup$ – Reuben Mallaby Apr 22 '18 at 17:48

  • $\begingroup$ I think I got 2 (see my answer). Feel free to add it to your list. $\endgroup$ – Pugmonkey Apr 21 '18 at 20:34
  • $\begingroup$ 7 is possibly ROT13 $\endgroup$ – Rubio Apr 21 '18 at 20:35
  • $\begingroup$ While I think 3 is correct, there is a slight problem with the article preceding the first word. $\endgroup$ – Bass Apr 21 '18 at 22:03
  • $\begingroup$ @Bass yeah, I noticed that, but figured QuantumTwinkie might have felt that "an" or "a(n)" was too much of a hint $\endgroup$ – puzzledPig Apr 21 '18 at 23:00

  • $\begingroup$ Ooh, that's a nice answer for #2! My answer has a few of the ones you're missing, though I know sometimes it's more fun to not peek :) $\endgroup$ – puzzledPig Apr 21 '18 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, you were fast (and good). There were no answers when I started writing, but you had it almost finished before I posted. Good job! $\endgroup$ – Pugmonkey Apr 21 '18 at 20:39

ware / where / wear

I found another one:

  1. They went through the $\underline{sweet}$ $\underline{suite}$ and got lost while trying to get out.

And another one, but a little relaxed.

  1. They $\underline{miss}$ed the couch through the $\underline{mist}$.

And another that although makes sense, seems a bit silly.

  1. After bathing their pet $\underline{moose}$ the drain was full of $\underline{mousse}$.

If I could add apostrophes or one other word, I would include for $8$,

"Talking write${}$" is not right.

A talking chilli is not chilly.
