It's Summertime - Let's Play

What is a malapropism?  It is the mistaken use of a word in place of a similar-sounding one, often with amusing consequences! Some very well know people have made some memorable malaprops.


"Texas has a lot of electrical votes." - Yogi Berra

"This is unparalyzed in the state's history." - Gib Lewis, Texas Speaker of the House
"They're gonna use us as an escape goat." - Steve Carrell in T he Office
"Last will and tentacle." - Archie Bunker in All in the Family

"He was a man of great statue." - Boston Mayor Thomas Menino

Make language fun in your household!
