COFFEE POT (Homonym Game)

A homonym is a word that sounds like another word but is spelled differently, for example, "be" and "bee", or "to", "too" and "two". There are lots of them in the English language. I learned a party game once called Coffee Pot, that required one person to use two homonyms in the same sentence, and then say the sentence, replacing the two homonyms with the words "Coffee Pot". The other person or persons then had to try to figure out what the two missing words were. For instance, if a person makes a sentence, "Coffee Pot some coffee into those Coffee Pot people's cups," you would guess "pour" (or "poor", pronounced the same, of course) to make the sentence, "Pour some coffee into those poor people's cups."

Sometimes a homonym can be comprised of more than one word. For example "around" and "a round" are two different "words" and are therefore homonyms. Also note the acceptable use of adding endings to word: Coffee Pots, Coffee Potted, Coffee Potting, etc.

See if you can guess the homonyms in the following sentences. Be on guard though. I might use approximate homonyms, such as using "lyin'" and "lion" in the sentence, "I think you were Coffee Pot when you said you saw a Coffee Pot in the jungle." You can click on the words "Coffee Pot" when you are ready to reveal the answers to a sentence. (You must have Javascript enabled to see the answers.)

There is a great variety in difficulty. Some you will undoubtedly get immediately upon reading them. I'd be willing to wager a bet (and I won't "abet" on that) that there are some that you won't figure out no matter how long you think about them.
