Commonly fucked up homophones.

These …are not …the fucking same.

Bear

I cannot bear this any longer: please, learn your damn homophones.

 
Capital

Improper grammar is not allowed inside the capitol.

Complement

Brandy Ryan complements me because she is everything I’m not.

Compliment

I compliment Brandy Ryan on her transcendent beauty incessantly.

 
Discreet

If you can’t discern the difference between homophones, then be discreet.

There is a discrete difference between someone who knows homophones and someone who does not.

 
Dual

The dual benefit of knowing homophones is that you will be able to communicate effectively and you won’t look like a jackass.

Duel

If you can’t even get homophones right, imagine how you’d do in a duel. Let’s just put it this way: John Wayne knew his homophones.

*Hint: Duel is usually deadly; dual is almost never harmful at all.

Its

Bad grammar shall no longer rear its ugly head.

It’s

It’s a terrible thing to use improper grammar.

*Hint: Its can only be possessive; It’s is a contraction of ‘it’ & ‘is’. Strongbad can explain this in further detail.

The grammar gods shall let loose some horrible plague upon you should you choose to continue fucking up homophones.

Lose

Using bad grammar is a social stigma, which makes you lose credibility.

Verses

The verses of the canonized Holy Text do not contain incorrect homophone usage; therefore, it is a cardinal sin to fuck them up.

Versus

A match against good grammar versus bad grammar is like Batman fighting a baby and stealing his candy in the process.

*Hint: Versus can only be a preposition, so it can only take the form of ‘Me versus You’ or ‘This versus That’; verses will almost always be a noun.

Your

Your grammar sucks.

You’re

You’re an idiot if you fuck up homophones.

*Hint: Your can only be possessive; you’re is a contraction of ‘you’ & ‘are’. See theWarehouse for further explication.

Please, learn your damn homophones.
