I know it's a dialect thing where I live, but I'm really tired of people wanting to 'ax me a question'.

Another one from the radio: Talk show caller was talking about someone he thought had been cowardly. "He should have had the Corleones to step up and do the right thing!"

Last weekend, my boyfriend told me that I am wonderful, from the fruit aisle all the way to the frozen food aisle. I think he meant to say from the top of my head to the tips of my toes.

In his defense, he had taken sleeping pills and they'd kicked in. He'd also been insisting that we had ridden 15 miles that day (we rode 2.89 miles) just 10 minutes prior to the wonderful comment. He was snoring (loudly) less than two minutes later.

This is quickly turning into my favourite thread ever.

To be fair, I've often wished I had the Corleones around to handle situations for me....

That is a good one!
I have finally found the bar I can't get thrown out of....

I had a coworker who was a frequent malaprop user, but my all time favorite was when she came in wearing a new outfit and said 'Look at these gazpacho pants, I found on sale yesterday!"  It was all I could do to not crack up, but I managed to say 'I think gazpacho is a type of soup, do you mean gaucho pants?' She replied 'Oh well, those are pretty much the same' and called them gazpacho pants from there on out.

I was explaining something to a coworker once and I was using a "work" word that she wouldn't have known - so I said something was referred to as "PAC" - for "Practical Application Credit" (that's not the actual words, I'm just using that to expalin).

She said, "Oh, yes, I know - it's an anachronism for something."
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

One I like it "It's not rocket surgery."  Courtesy of Kat on LA Ink.

This originally appeared as a Headline on Leno. I use it all the time.

I also like "I'm not a rock scientist!" from (i think?) Jessica Simpson.

The radio announcer this morning was talking about Tiger Woods having a s*e*x "addition."

I guess that's one way to put it!  :P >:D

My daughter, after being told that my grandmother had diabetes, asked if she would have to start taking "insulation" now?

Everybody in this family needs to just calm down and eat some fruit or something.

I recently gave a cheerful response of "No Pleasure!" to someone thanking me for something.

I ended up standing babbling about "no problem" and "my pleasure" for about five minutes after they'd left.
Think I'll stick to "You're Welcome!" in future...

(Not sure if this is really the best place for this, but didn't think it deserved its own thread...)

I've had a problem with verbatim vs. verboten lately.

I was making a joke about my bf and instead of saying steaming pile, I said Piling Steam.
