Fired for What!? - Blogging About Homophones

Oh sure, you let homophones into our schools, and what next? Gay televisions? Next thing you know, kids are marrying horses. It's a slippery slope. Wait, what?

An employee at an English-language learning center was reportedly fired for blogging about homophones (words that sound the same but have different meanings).

This one has really blown up on the Internet.

Inn this instants, I take the teachers sighed four all intensive purpose. <- Homophones.
