Nobody told me there was an Auntie Desert for slap! When? Where? I've been looking for one of these to slap for ages!

It's not restricted to eBay. You regularly see Volkswagons, Zantias and the like for sale, not to mention the car parts they can't spell. You'd think the people who receive these ads would be issued with a list of common words, but no.
I once saw an advert in a Dundee paper for a motorbike that had a racing fern. After thinking in terms of reed valves for a while I realised that a Dundonian had phoned the advert in and it was a fairing.

1. The bandage was wound around the wound.
2. The farm was used to produce produce.
3. The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4. We must polish the Polish furniture.
5. He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7. Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
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.

Lets face it English is a crazy language! There’s not egg in the eggplant, no ham in the hamburger and neither pine nor apple in the pineapple. English muffins weren’t invented in England. If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.
It really is no wonder we all need a spellchecker. nice to see you all had a good afternoon at the n&n sorry I missed it, next time appen.[:I]

Regarding Auntie Desert's brother, formerly a squid. Surely not. It is the octopi that go on aunties.
