Default Misreadings and stuff

So, in this thread you can share anything you've read as something else at a first glance, thought "wait, that can't be right..." and then look back at what it actually says and have a good laugh.

One of my best is reading "King Boo" as "Kim Jong-Il" during a game of Mario Kart with my brother. I have no clue how, really... we both had a good laugh.
I've also read "Angry Birds" as "Angry Bitch", and "stop haunting me" as "stop humping me".

So, you have any amusing ones to share?

Have you ever read 'popcorn' as 'cocporn' and then said it out loud? It results in madness.

I posted this on #tcod already, but every time I go to read someone's profile, I see it as 'View Pubic Profile' and that is just fucking disgusting

The most famous one is when I misread "Pizza and Pasta' as "Pizza and Farts"

Never live it down...

My most brilliant misreading?

Well, I must've been really fucking tired that night, and my now-girlfriend had posted a set of rules for a roleplaying forum we were gonna do
One of the rules was for being overly-controlling (we were all for equal plot-building), and the header to it was "The Harbor Is Not Yours".

I misread "harbor" as "penis".

Needless to say, it resulted in endless double-takes.

An RP. A Persian was talking about how much he loved his kits. Repeatedly. I misread it as "tits." The Persian was male, yes.

I have misreadings regularly, but ah, I can't remember them all.

We had a big giggle over one of my friends misreading "Outnumbered" as "Quantum Beard".

And, not quite the same, but my sister managed to write an entire essay about politics, and every time she meant to say "senator", she said "centaur". The teacher who marked it was very confused indeed XD

She also wrote a sociology essay on the theories of Robert K. Merton, but spent the entire essay calling him Paul Merton.

I'd like to stress here that she's actually a very intelligent girl, she just makes highly amusing mistakes now and then.

That would be me. I actually spent a little while looking at it trying to figure out what "Quantumbeard" would be about (I imagined some sort of a modern more physics-geeky version of Blackbeard) and I could have sworn I'd read it several times before I realized that wasn't actually what it said. To be fair, it was sideways.

I misread things a lot, in general. The other day somebody was asking about good sore throat remedies in #tcod and I thought "Sore throat comedy? What are those, are they like comedies where people scream a lot or something what ?_?" until I reread it. And sometime I had this math homework sheet and managed to read three different words on it as something to do with homosexuality. Freud would be rubbing his hands together in glee.

I have so many of these it's almost not even funny. The only one I remember was a poster that said "Step Into Excitement" except that I thought it was "Step Into Excrement."

Oh, and I once read "(have a) nice summer" as "from Satan" on a bag of cookies. Makes a tiny more sense in Norwegian, but not much.

I also saw something about "recommended hentai" in the window of a bank, and instantly went "uh, what?" Then I saw it actually said "rents".

And the first time I saw the logo for the site "Love Gives Me Hope", I read that as "1337 gives me hope". Yeah, when you read letters as numbers...

And last thing I can think off now, I once read "Stain remover"(or something with "stain" at least) as "Stalin remover".

Yes! In front of my mother and sister! It was most embarassing.

A couple of days ago we were in some seaside town and there was a sign for 'fresh crab', which, from afar, I read as 'fish crap'. Yeah.

There's that water bottle label of Aquafine, I think. It says "Pure Life". I always misread it as "Pure Lies".

Oh, yeah, there is this deodorant that says something about "moisturizing deodorant" and somehow every time I look at it I read it as "womanizing deodorant".

My dyslexia gives me so many of these it is sad...

I somehow misread 'mongoose' as 'zangoose' anytime I see the word.

And now I see Pubic Profile....
