Violators Will Be Toed

English is a language that is very prone to puns because of the large numbers of homophones, words that are spelled differently (and mean different things), but which are pronounced the same way, as you can see here: towed and toed - not to mention toad! Check Wikipedia for more about homonyms and homophones, and also see the article about puns.
