When I was in college, there was a Dairy Queen I drove past on my way home everyday. For a number of months during the summer, they had "Try our new Blizzards!" on their sign. I'd always read it as, "Try our new Buzzards!" because they had the L and the I smooshed together.
The actual post title (which I did not read) was "hitmen and unions", but reading it as hitmen and unicorns , well that would have been much more interesting, so I was a bit disapointed when I re-read the title.
You should start a "hitmen and unicorns" thread, that would really fuck over the people looking for the other one.
Why do we always come here?
I guess we'll never know.
It's like a kind of torture,
To have to watch this show.
I get that a lot, and I tend to mix things up when I'm typing as well I called one of my friends (actual name Sophie) Shop the other day, and let's just say I'm REALLY glad I proof-read my science coursework It only happens when Im typing though; not when I am handwriting something

I recently misread Jeffster's blog title as "Jeffster Rocks Your Womb!" (it's actually "Jeffster Rocks Your World!" in case you're living under a forum rock.)
JivinJeffJones recently started a thread titled "Why the female fascination with love triangles?" that I misread as "Why the female fascination with love handles?"
Ever since Jeffster mentioned it, I can't read SKY is blue!'s blog ("Sky Regnant") as anything but "Sky Pregnant."
He also mentioned "Post Your Picture And Get Reamed!" (actually "renamed") which makes me chuckle every time.
In a related story, one of my favorite pastimes is reading the scrolling TV guide channel and remarking on the juxtapositions. Sometimes the titles are truncated to fit in the small boxes, so you can get some funny ones back to back. I have done this for an embarrassingly long time. The best one to date happened ten years ago when the show Hercules was still on the air. The channel Hercules was on (sci fi?) was right next to E! or something like that:
(I think the full name of the Hercules show was "Hercules: The Legendary Journey.")
Maybe it's Ne misfiring or maybe it's just me being absentminded, but I think shit like this is hilarious. Anybody have any humorous misreadings or juxtapositions to share?
