Delightful story in the always delightful Wonkette about a guy who got fired for writing a blog post about homophones, because it sounded too ... icky. It kind of sounded like another word, you might say. Of course they had to use the tired old "cunning linguist" joke, but at least with a good graphic.

It's just as well he got fired. What might he have brought up next - polysemy???
