I used to think it was patent (pat-ent) that it rhymed with sour, but have since learned that it patently (pate-ently) rhymes with tour.

That's pretty much how it went for me, and also why I'm fence-straddlin'; there are so many people who opt for sour, and one wants to talk with them. Without getting all knotted up.

I cannot imagine rhymes-with-tour except in the context of a Scots accent.

This reader would love to know why the owl asks.

the impetus
to isolate a sense. and in doing so, stumbled upon this conflict i didn't know existed. another failing of the written word.

I stumbled upon a conflict, too. In searching for video of Blake Lively's SNL dress, I saw the Tiger Woods skit that made some people upset.

are you perhaps the anonymous bidder? you could probably nab blake's actual dress for a fraction of that sum.

That'd make quite an extravagant Christmas gift for somebody I know.
