    Wow! These posts are hilarious!

    I like "bloopers" on tv. When a newscaster says something incorrect, gets even more flustered, and just can't get it right. Or, when, the person sitting next to them at the desk tries to say the correct word and messes it up too!

    I also love it when a "giggle-fest" happens. You know, when one anchor giggles, then the next one gets it and tries to get through his segment and by the time the commercial break comes, you can tell they can hardly hold it in. That's fun sometimes on local news. Not national, mind you.

    I've never heard of a sexual sofa though. I don't think we sell those up here.

    bbnbama: Yes, I love family "words" too. Like my baba would "open" the tv.; not turn it on. And "shut" the lights, not turn them off. Things like that. It's nice you recognize your moms little s additions.

    How about pixtures for pictures? My MIL says that all the time and I just want to smack her in the head. Oh, and crowns for crayons! That's my SIL - and she now has her three kids saying it that way. Aaaargh!

    Clotetnerd, the "r" is in the same spot as wa"r"sh. I find that I am guilty of a few of these. I had to axe my mother if I need to by terlet paper. She said he'd already implied to me that I needed it.

    You used "implied" in its correct sense.

    Canuck... I agree. The other one that is guaranteed to get my dander up is putting an apostrophe in what was intended to be a plural (or non-possessive) word. Hate it.

    "I think he see's the word's are wrong, but he like's to make mistake's sometime's." ACK!
