Just a second ago, I was reading a Narnia book when I misread a chapter title as "ICWhatUDidThar" when it was actually "What Caspian Did There".

So there's this pizza-thing at the shopping center next to my school, right? And a good lot of the sign's long since been wearing away... So, half the time when I'm going home, I misread it as a big sign saying "JIZZ" instead of "PIZZA." Gets me every time, I swear... |D;

EDIT

Ummm

"Cup" as "blockah" (yes). And "Lucy Pevensie" as "Oozy Popcorn".

Do not ask me how.

At a health fair thing at school once I read the word "DERP" in someone's presentation thing on depression. It was in all caps and the font made R and P look really similar!

I'll have to come back to this thread later, I have these all the time but I can only remember derpession

So I somehow managed to read "Smash" (upside-down though) as "Hipsters" recently. i don't even.

And "I poor [sic] orange juice" turned into "I poop orange juice" ...um, what.

The first time I saw Pansage's name, I read it as Pancake.
And on the Pokémon Global Link page, I've several times read "tucked" (the most tucked-in Pokémon) as "fucked". Which is pretty damn disturbing.

I also once read "Sitback V.Alpha" on Deviantart(some thing for slideshows of galleries) as Sitback Vagina. what

As you can see, I have lots of these, and could probably write a whole book about all of them.

I kept misreading (and mishearing) Oliver Twist as Jack Twist...

So we were out bowling, and when "Bummer" showed up so the screen, my brother read it as "Boner".

I consistently misread a poster that said leadership opportunity as lesbianism opportunity. It kept tripping me up and I'd always get a little excited and then realize I had misread it and then I'd be all dammit :(.

When playing Black late one night level grinding some of my 'mons for the Battle Subway, I briefly saw Ejacdrill instead of Excadrill when I leveled it up. That's when I was convinced that it was bed time.

I never misread. Ever. I just typo like a mofo when I'm tired, as #tcod can certainly attest to. /checks tcodquotes for any evidence

I do this a lot. I also mess up when I'm saying things. Like in D&D last week I was DMing and one of the players said they "Uppercut" the wolf that was attacking them, and I go, "Okay, you uppercunt-" then I caught myself. It was highly amusing.

Also I remember my mother and I were at the homecoming game (She went there when she was in school) and of course Minnesota is cold as fuck, so my mom tries to tell me her "toes are numb" instead she ends up saying "My noes are dumb." We laughed for like ten minutes.
