Pardon me?

I think my hearing is starting to fail. Either that, or I'm slipping into some type of Freudian realm. A few examples...


During a commercial for a VOIP provider:

What I heard: "No nipples and dimes, like the phone company."

What was actually said: "No nickels and dimes, like the phone company."



During a commercial for a cleaning product:

What I heard: "Sometimes I play with my poops in the toilet."

What was actually said: "Sometimes I play with my boats in the toilet."



And by far the most disturbing - during a commercial for PBS Kids Sprout (toddler TV):

What I heard: "On The Goodnight Show tonight, we'll be learning about drugs and then sex."

What was actually said: "On The Goodnight Show tonight, we'll be learning about bugs and insects."

I fail to see how this has anything to do with Wordless Wednesday, but I'm trying. ; )

I hear stuff like that all the time. It can really get a person in trouble!!

I do this all the time, both when talking to people, and while reading. Only when I do it, it's much more disturbing. I call it dirty dyslexia...
