Will he? Lexical ambiguity is fun!

We love those sentences that trigger a first response of “wait, what??”

So Let’s try and figure this one out:

Will Will [a person] will [bequeath] the will [a document] to Will [a second person]?

Now we just need to wait for Will!

Have a great Sunday everyone!

    “try and”? Really? Nails on a chalkboard. Using “and” assumes success, negating the need to “try”. So it’s just “Let’s figure this one out.” If you’re going to “try” something, where success is not guaranteed, it is “Let’s try TO figure this one out.”
