Bear in mind (as in bearing, rather than Grizzly!)

it depends - are you thinking about naked boys or bears?

This often confuses me, but I think it's bear. Because 'bare' means either naked or to tolerate.

If it is in the sense of 'keep in mind', then it is 'bear'.

(Obviously, if you're thinking of someone nekkid, then it is the other)...

EDIT: Really must type faster when someone hands you such an open goal

Isn't bear to tolerate? As in 'I can't bear it'?

Mary had a little lamb
She also had a bear
I've often seen her little lamb
But I've never seen her bare

Definately 'bear'.

How about this one. Is it 'hear hear' or 'here here'? Both could legitimately be correct, as in 'I hear you' or 'I agree over here'

It's 'hear hear'. People always get that one wrong on DS!
