What happens when a frog's car breaks down? It gets toad away. If you're like me and laughed at this joke more than you probably should have, you know that words are fun. Bruce Worden, the man behind a blog called Homophones, Weakly, also shares this opinion. Like you might have already guessed, he's into homophones (each of two or more words having the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spelling). In fact, Bruce likes them so much, he's even visualizing them!

Poking fun at the English language, Bruce uses minimalistic illustrations to prove that we just have to listen. For without context we couldn't know if someone is inviting us to a sail or sale. Scroll down for the images and upvote your favorites! Also, be sure to check out our list of the 20+ 'Same' Things That Most People Don’t Know Are Actually Different, too!

I like how in one picture he tries to murder the reindeer, and the next he's just using it. It's like he's forcing him into labor. Poor reindeer.

Ages past, the Finnish were great athletes and got on a streak of winning events - always seen at the end line of a race - 'til the point that people not able to watch the race, asked their friend, ' was he Finnish? '. or 'he won it outrightly..must've finished the competition'
