Nah, this one just stuck with me.
Hows about weather, wether and whether. Gold star to first person who can tell the difference.
I use them all for the same thing, the difference is irrelevant.
No - but I like to lecture

Close but no cigar.
Weather - the outside rain and shit
wether - a castrated male sheep (or goat if you want to be technical)
whether - between them, i.e. whether or not

cant tell the difference (as written by you) between one of them and a ewe: it's a cryptic crossword clue
female sheep: a female sheep, especially when fully grown
castrated sheep or goat: a male sheep or goat that has been castrated before becoming sexually mature

The word wether, which is not frequently encountered in general usage, denotes a castrated sheep or goat. Whether introduces an alternative or indirect question: whether you want to or not; Ask her whether she wants
