You shouldn’t bee surprised

Anyone who has read Yahoo! Style should not be surprised to find this homophonic horror on the site:

bee sty

I was about to file this one under the heading “Commonly Confused Words,” but be and bee aren’t commonly confused. In fact, I’ve never, ever seen one used in the place of the other. Never. The writers at Style win the prize for the most creative misuse of the English language.
