Utterly unrelated to computers, but it's a great linguistic mixup example. I had toured a wooden sailing ship visiting our sunny shores on a world tour. I was hanging around afterward, observing and annoying the crew with questions. One of them finally told me I could sign up to sail it (which I did!). Well, I also overheard a lady chatting with a couple of the crew about her daughter who was joining the ship there for a leg of the tour. It came up that her daughter loved to dance. She said "Oh yes, she loves to shag. I'm sure within a day she'll probably be teaching the whole crew." Cue choking and giggling, then they had to explain why.

My week as temp crew was also the coolest thing I've ever done.
