Unthinkingly, during a class centered around the joy of homophones, I wrote the word on the blackboard in two parts. I was intending to explain what it's component words meant. So in fat yellow chalk characters I've scrawled 'Homo' on the board and a great many students are chuckling away. I hastily write 'phones'. More laughing. Now gestures too. Effette people talking on the telephone. Haha.
Some of these kids can't spell 'February' yet but 'Homo' is something they know. And also apparently 'the dick into the pussy', because some wag had written it on the board between lessons. Had to restrain myself from correcting the lack of a capital 'T' as the Japanese English sensei was watching.
