My parents house is jinxed. Whenever we all get together in the kitchen we seem to talk absolute gibberish.

Not only mixing up words, but weird phonetic shit like swapping around the first letters of some words.

It can be very funny when words get mixed up inadvertantly because they may sound like what you meant to say/or you have some kind of word association with it. Often times this gives what you are saying a completely different meaning to what you intended.

My brother in law to be was sick recently and I was chatting to my parents about it and as my mind searched for the word desribing what was wrong, I came out with "rickets" when I meant to say "shingles", much to the hilarity of my parents.

A great example I heard on the radio yesterday was a guy who was going through a run of bad luck said something like: "what's next, famine and petchulance?" Think you meant pestilance there hon!

Or on the Apprentice a couple of weeks ago, Jenny complained that she ended up having to "breast feed" two members of her team, meaning spoon feed!

Can you think of any other examples?

Another one that made me laugh recently was a friend of mine described themselves as "insestuous with rage", they meant to say incenced, if I was a sibling standing nearby I might step away a bit further!
