    I always remember Victoria Wood in "Dinnerladies" - her character Bren couldn't pronounce Millenium. It was "Minnelium". When l had to use it l always had to think twice after that.

    Don't worry B3. I'm the king of the typos. I once sent an email to a female colleague which included the line 'I know how busty you are' thinking I'd typed 'I know how busy you are' (the problem was...she happened to be very busty indeed!).

    On another occasion, I sent an email to all my staff and signed it off 'Retards....', thinking I had written 'Regards..." Which was even worse given my job at the time (Learning Disability Service Manager).

    You must be glad that floppy discs have been consigned to history. So many opportunities for accidentally inappropriate remarks. DVDs are much safer

    Great thread.   :D
    I like the spoonerism which appeared on an "out-takes" TV programme.  Serious news lady talking about drugs came up with the phrase "hypodeemic nerdle".

    A "hypodeemic nerdle", ROFL. Now that really ought to be a piece of medical equipment.
    I mean who doesn't want their hypodeems nerdled? :D
