# Homophone riddle

This should be pretty easy

You can find me at a grocery store,

Or a part of Chinese philosophy,

Either way, you wind up with the same pronunciation


What are the two words?

Hint:

In line one, the item is a dairy product

• Can you clarify the entry to line two? The grammar confuses me. Homophone comment to a homophone riddle; gotta love puns. – Perpetual J Aug 14 '18 at 21:21
• Sorry, I kind of messed up on that one, thanks for pointing it out – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:38
• The pronunciation varies so I am using wikipedia – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:46
• Not the changes – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:50
• Can everyone change their answer because I am using a different pronunciation – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:51

cheese and qis?

This could work because

cheese is a dairy product and qi means life force for Chinese philosophy (qis is the plural form).

• So close! Keep the qi and the answer is slightly different – Duck Aug 15 '18 at 15:51
• Make it plural and you are almost done! – Duck Aug 15 '18 at 15:52
• Truueeeeee -- how does this look? @Duck – El-Guest Aug 15 '18 at 15:53
• Yay! Nice job! Finally, yay! – Duck Aug 15 '18 at 15:54
• This is the intended answer – Duck Aug 15 '18 at 15:55

Harry

You can find me in a romance movie

When Harry Met Sally

Or believe in middle east philosophy

Hare Krishna

• I like this answer, but isn't one pronounced HAY-ree and the other HAW-ree? – El-Guest Aug 14 '18 at 19:44
• @El-Guest I'm not a native speaker, so my pronunciation is not exactly exemplary anyway :D – Eutherpy Aug 14 '18 at 19:50
• It's a great guess though! (+1) from me! – El-Guest Aug 14 '18 at 19:51
• It's not this one either – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 19:58
• Note the changes – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:53

Is it:

Dharma?

Dharma & Greg Wiki

Although its technically a romantic comedy show, not a movie

Dharma Wiki

Various meanings in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism.

• Good guess, but no – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 19:57
• Change your answer if you didn't see the changes – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:53

A first guess would be:

Profit and Prophet; since a romance movie can generate profits, and a prophet believes in philosophy.

I think I'll take another swing if this isn't it.

• Like you said maybe you should "take another swing at it" – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:35
• I could give another hint but you would probably get it right away – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:36
• No worries, I'll see what I can come up with here. – Perpetual J Aug 14 '18 at 21:42
• Note the change of pronunciation – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:52

My guess is:

SEEK - as in the search for true love
SIKH - follower of Sikhism

New guess after edited question:

DOW - Dow Chemical produces packaging for many consumer packaged goods found in grocery stores
DAO or DAOISM (Tao or Taoism) - Chinese philosophy

• Sorry but it isn't right – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:34
• The romance movie thing got replaced since this is a homophone riddle there was more than one pronunciation and I changed it to another – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:55

I have 2 things in mind, but I'm not sure of either

First one

Fete and fate

Second one

Him and hymn

• Sorry but did you see the first line – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 20:15
• I thought you meant it's not a specific person, but I can go ahead and remove my second guess – nikki Aug 14 '18 at 20:20
• See the above, I changed the answer – Duck Aug 14 '18 at 21:56
• Oh okay, let me think again... – nikki Aug 15 '18 at 0:02

Could be

dao / dow

since

dao/ tao ("the path")

is a principle of Eastern philosophy, and

dow (packaging)

can be found in grocery stores.
