I've had this conversation numerous times, but it's too funny not to mention again. In the car yesterday Tom blurted out, "I know why bare feet are called Bear Feet, because when you take your shoes off you have feet like a bear. Bear's don't wear shoes." I tried and tried to explain the difference between bare and bear by telling him about synonyms of bare, like naked. I told him when you don't have any clothes on, you're all naked, or you're all bare. He then says, "Yes, because bears don't wear clothes, so when we take our clothes off, we are bear."
