I just misread "Fake Syrian blogger" as "Fake Syrian booger". Iwas confused, thought maybe it was a political term I haven't heard/saw before, until I reread it.

"Carbonated water" as "concentrated water"

I'm... not quite sure how that would work.

Sounds like the time I meant to refer to myself as the "best brass player" but messed up while I was speaking so I ended up saying "I am the breast - the bra - the BEST BRASS PLAYER."

One time I misread the sentence "I was a fool then" as "I was a tool then" and read it out loud...

I have a friend who thought another friend's shirt said "I <3 Penis." It actually said "I <3 Paris."

I also managed to read satyr as stayr for like a year before I actually realized it. I tend to do things like this a lot.

Yesterday I saw a bus pass by with an advertisement saying, "Come visit the Pregnancy Hotel!" I was like, "Woah! A hotel for pregnant people?!" And then I noticed it said Regency Hotel.

"Do not feed the giraffe" was misread by yours truly as "Donors, feel the gavel." Yes. I know it makes no sense. I didn't understand it either.

I laughed so hard (internally) when I misheard that.

My brother's T-shirt has "Trail" written on it. I misread it as "Frail."
Also "Flying pirates" as "Flying Pikachu." From his T-shirt again.
There is also a shoe box with "Magnate" on it. I misread it as "Madness."

I routinely misread, miswrite and mispronounce "delirious" as "delicious", which creates problems and/or hilarity when I try and tell people I'm not delirious from sleep deprivation.

You know how Tirtouga is the "Prototurtle Pokémon"? Well, as I got it in Pokédex 3D, I read that as "Prostitute Pokémon". xD

And in Zelda OoT3D, I read "what would Saria say" as "what would Santa say".

Talking to a friend of mine about something yesterday.

He said: "I think I'm gonna make ravioli for lunch."
I read: "I think I'm gonna make Romulans for lunch."


He /ran with it/ for an hour before he broke down and told me.
