RE: I Had Amnesia Once... The Friday File

Just to REALLY confound those for whom Engrish is a second language (ESOL's).

malapropisms - where the speaker uses a word that *sounds* similar to the word they want, but means something completely different.

For Example:

  • "Your ambition - is that right - is to abseil across the English channel?"
    Cilla Black
  • "It is beyond my apprehension."
    Danny Ozark, baseball team manager
  • "Listen to the blabbing brook."
    Norm Crosby
  • "This is unparalyzed in the state's history."
    Gib Lewis, Texas Speaker of the House
  • "She's really tough; she's remorseful."
    David Moorcroft
  • "And then he [Mike Tyson] will have only channel vision."
    Frank Bruno, boxer
  • "Cardial - as in cardial arrest."
    Eve Pollard
  • "Marie Scott... has really plummeted to the top."
    Alan Weeks
  • "He's going up and down like a metronome."
    Ron Pickering
  • "He's on 90... 10 away from that mythical figure."
    Trevor Bailey, cricket commentator
  • "Unless somebody can pull a miracle out of the fire, Somerset are cruising into the semi-final."
    Fred Trueman
  • "We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile."
    George W. Bush
  • "The police are not here to create disorder, they're here to preserve disorder."
    Richard Daley, former Chicago mayor
  • "He was a man of great statue."
    Thomas Menino, Boston mayor
  • "Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."
    Dan Quayle, Vice President
  • "Well, that was a cliff-dweller."
    Wes Westrum, about a close baseball game
  • "If Gower had stopped that [cricket ball] he would have decapitated his hand."
    Farokh Engineer
  • "We seem to have unleased a hornet's nest."
    Valerie Singleton
  • "This series has been swings and pendulums all the way through."
    Trevor Bailey, cricket commentator
  • "Be sure and put some of those neutrons on it."
    Mike Smith, ordering a salad at a restaurant
  • "It's got lots of installation."
    Mike Smith, describing his new coat


I'll close with my favorite Steven Wright quote:

"Some people say I'm off in my own little world...but that's ok...they know me there."
