just read jackie's story of mistyping "pronunciation" as "pornunciation" which made me roar with laughter.
recently i had the misfortune to refer to "political correctness" as "political erectness" - in a business meeting!
does anyone else have any freudian slips or bricks to add?

Mark this well, william!
If you read the false friends thread in this same
category, you'll be rolling!

too right, jackie.
should have placed this in the false friends arena!
still, maybe there are some freudian slips that might come out.

Here's a good one:

a girl was doing the morning announcements in my high school and she was saying something about the International Thespian Society, but she accidentally said International Lesbian Society.

Are you sure you don't mean freudian slits?
