An archive article at long last, we haven’t seen one of those in a while ironically. In these articles I take a look back at a thing from gamboling of yesteryear – this time Auto Antonyms.
Auto Antonyms are words which have at least two meanings which contradict each other. An ideal example of this is the word “dust”. The first thing people think of is that when you dust you remove dust from your house. But of course you can also dust a cake with icing sugar which means conversely adding fine powder to something.
My dad and I used this to create a sentence which could have 1,536 meanings, find out how and also learn about the birds and the bees.

If you can beat 1,536 meanings of a sentence then let me know in the comments.
