Do you have any favorite malaprops or mispronounced words? Some guy just called into a radio show and asked about sound waves that cancellate. Another favorite of mine is the common midwestern usage of the word de-thaw - you take the meat out of the freezer to de-thaw it. We discovered that with the large German population in this part of the US, this is probably a remnant of be-thaw, which would make sense to a German American. Tsu likes to make fun of me if I do something like this. She still hasn't figured out that I enjoy self defecating humor.
