    They're also pronounced differently. Wont like "want" and won't like "don't".

    As in "wonton behaviour"? (Or is that a Chinese entrée?).

    That's wanton behaviour. Different again.

    Wontons are delicious. That's all I know about them.

    On that note it cracks me up when I buy wonton wrappers and they say 'wanton wrappers'. I'm always like "Oh you saucy wrappers, you."

    Don't ask me why but I thought of @harvs with this one.

    Eta: it's the grammar that made me think of her not the intent.
