Golf & Gulf

What did the square root of sixteen shout while playing golf? "Four!"

An interesting side note on this one: the flags that mark the holes in golf are rectangular – but when people draw them for cartoons or whatever, they're ALWAYS triangular. Seriously, google "golf flag." Every photo that comes up will show a rectangular flag, but every cartoon/illustration will be a triangle. It's bizarre.

Homophones, Weakly's first guest blogger! Harrison, my six-year-old partner in homophony, submitted not only a suggestion, but his very own drawing based on the complicated situation of listening to people pronounce the word Iraq. Is it "eh-" or "eye-," "-rack" or "-rock"? There are lots of possible combinations (not to mention quite a few meanings for "rack" – ahem), so I appreciate the help in sorting it out, Harrison. And I enjoyed reinterpreting your drawings in the HW style.
