Funny word stuff

I love malapropisms: similar-sounding but incorrect words, which sometimes have a humorous effect.

Here are a couple of recent ones:

  • Viking Worrier Statue (Viking Warrior Statue) for sale on eBay 
  • Emotion Paint (Emulsion Paint) for sale on Marketplace 

Have you seen any funny word stuff? If so, do share!

  • Wonderful idea, Sunflower; I love all forms of word play, especially the unintended ones. My favourite are "crash blossoms", where signs and news headlines shorten things in strangely ambiguous ways that conjure up surreal images. For example (taken from this webpage)...

    • Prostitutes appeal to pope
    • Kids make nutritious snacks
    • Miners refuse to work after death
    • Drunk gets nine months in violin case
    • Astronaut takes blame for gas in space capsule
    • Lack of brains hinders research

    Your Shakespeare parody is amazing! In my book, there is no such thing as a bad pun - the worse, the funnier, I usually find!
