How about "your" for "you're"? That one makes my eyes hurt, as well as "to," "too," and "two" or "there," "their," and "they're"--and is anyone else irritated by the sentence, "This needs fixed"?

Yes, homophone crossovers are tricky, and annoying. And that last sort of recalls the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show with June Foray voicing a female character who screeches, "Honey, the TV set is bust!". The TV set is bust, of course, because of a nefarious plan by Boris Badenov and Fearless Leader to jam all American televisions with Pottsylvanian commercials.

 

"FEARLESS LEADER: You ever seen Pottsylwanian telewision?

 

BORIS: Please, not so soon after eatink!"
