The Trouble with Homophones

Schatz: If you could be any aunt....which aunt would you be?

Me:  I'd be my Aunt Becky.

Maura:  I'd be Aunt Gabrielle.

Schatz: I'd be a honey ant, but I'd have a red butt.

Me (catching onto my error):  Why red?  Honey ants have yellow butts.

Schatz: My butt would have Tabasco hot sauce instead of honey.  I'll bet nobody would try to eat my butt then.
