I think you should accept the reverse order on ones like weight wait and morning mourning. If they are answered the way the clue is presented, then the answers are the reverse of what you have as the correct answer.

Thanks for the feedback! I would think that mourning morning means that you would be grieving for the morning itself. I’m not sure “wait weight” could actually mean. I think of a wait to see your weight as a weight wait, as you’re, you know, waiting for a weight.

Yeah, the way it's stated, I tried bite byte because of the word order, but obviously byte bite makes the grammatical sense.

Agreed - I tried both bite byte and wait weight assuming you wanted the same word order as in the clue.

Great job! Can you accept 'Byte Bite' for 'Consumed 1000 in Binary' since a byte would be 8 bits, which represent a digit in binary? Might be a bit of a stretch but it's a neat coincidence—but it costed me a minute and a half, so I ran out of time. :(

Nominated, again.

I like that one. I replaced morning mourning with it. :)

Could "fine fine" also work for "reasonable toll"? The instructions don't say that the homophones can't also be homonyms.

Fair point, but I understand a fine to be a monetary punishment rather than something like bus fare. I do like the sound of fine fine, though.

My first thought for "penny odor" was "Lincoln Stinkin'" - obviously not a homophone but made me laugh
