Editing for Grammarphobes: A Wednesday Quickie

I haven't done a grammar post in awhile, so here is a quickie courtesy of Sue Sommer's wonderful book, The Bugaboo Review.

wanton/wonton


Wanton is an adjective meaning "lewd or immoral."


Wonton is a delicious kind of stuffed Chinese noodle.

Oh! Wanton was used in Hamlet, without a footnote, and now it makes much more sense. Of course I didn't think Shakespeare meant the noodle, but I was wondering.

And then, there are the wanton wontons. You want to be careful of those. They can be very spicy. ;)
Well played, Jayne. :)
