Continuing from Part 1

11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid.   (Shilpa Garg  came out with this one)

12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row .

13) They were too close to the door to close it.

14) The buck does funny things when the does are present.

15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail.

18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

    Been scratching my head whole day to come up with at least one sentence and no use..:( my son, my saviour’s dialogue once. There is this person who joined at work and I was telling that she’s getting good appreciation. So, he tells me: “Amma, you should work hard than that Nue(her name) girl (not new girl) and get good name too”. 🙂 Bikram, wanted to tell you from long time. The lines next to the check boxes on the bottom of the comment section is not visible. the notify me by email lines.
