On near-homonyms.

Mummy. What is that car dealership? What kind of cars are in it?

Volvos.

[Long pause.]

Like… vulvas? [She sounds baffled.]

Oh dear me, no – it’s a very similar word, but not a similar concept. It’s “O”s instead of “U”s in the word. Good job on seeing the similarity!

So… there are no vulvas in there?

Nope. Well, not unless there are women sales staff or women purchasers. But they would be private; not on display. [I cringe as I say this, obviously.]

There might be vulvas in there if they had to use the toilet. Then, they would take their vulvas to the bathroom.

Yes. Yes, they would.
