I think a retired English teacher was bored.
THIS IS GREAT! This took a lot of work to put together!
You think English is easy??

5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.

6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.

10) I did not object to the object.

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

We really do have a complicated language. I am so impressed that anyone not born into it can ever learn it.

Loved this piece. This retired English teacher wasn't the one who wrote these. Wish I had.
