Gorilla & Guerilla

My all-time favorite homophone! I remember giggling about this in junior high with my friend Abe so much that we got in trouble with a librarian. :)
I suppose, looking back, it's not that funny, really. It's also a lazy anglicization of a Spanish word, so you could make the argument that these really aren't homophones at all. If you wanted to be that way.

Tortuous & Torturous

These two are NOT homophones. But they're also NOT THE SAME WORD! That second R makes quite a difference, people. I'll admit that solving a maze might feel like torture, but the route through a maze is not Torturous, it's Tortuous – winding, circuitous, complicated.
