A lady in front of me in the shop the other day has a son who suffers from Diabetes Melitosis!!

YANBU - my mum is always talking about prostrate cancer and it makes me want to cry a little bit.

If it's bloody - please see a doctor, and consider asking your partner to be a little less rough.

I get twitchy with masectomy....

I know someone who swears she had cataracts in her knee...

Depends what you're saying surely. Sometimes it will be prostrate

My friend talks about 'pacific' items.

"Shall I get you anything pacific for your birthday?"

I so say prostate correctly, but I didn't realise prostrate was a word! I nearly strain myself eye rolling when people say it.

OK, i know this is not a play on words, but it always makes me laugh to remember ti:

My old gran, in her 90's, re-telling something she had heard at lunch club about one of their number who had passed away the day before. The story concluded with her saying, in all complete and total seriousness, and i will never forget this

" ..... yes, and when the doctor came, he said she had died because all her blood had turned to MILK!!!! "

Nearly as bad as those who get the train into London from my way - to St Pancreas

My mother (a teacher) once received a note from a parent apologizing for a child's non-attendance at school that morning due to 'Dire Rear'. We all thought that was pretty good really.

"Have you a glass of prosciutto?"


"No, you know, pruschetta. Just a glass, not a bottle."

mutny Mon 05-Nov-12 13:21:41

on another forum someone told me they were ill with 'newmoania'.

BeyondGoesOffWithABigBang Mon 05-Nov-12 13:22:06

Dire rear sounds quite accurate to me grin

mutny Mon 05-Nov-12 13:22:58

her blood turned to milk?

that made me smile, then wonder what the actual cause was. smile

My dad tried to order a pastis in a pub in Oxford and was told they don't do food.

Always remember my mum explaining to my aunt with a suitable air of expertise that nowadays, children with difficulties at school were referred to as 'State Mented'... meaning that they were in the control of the State, and were mentored by them. She may even have said mented by them, which would also have got past my aunt with no problems.

<shakes head>

My poor Mum told everyone that Dad had prostrate trouble and her friend was on that HIV treatment and that had us all a bit worried until we chatted and it was actually HRT grin

My mum worked with a lady who used to sing along to the radio (quite loudly), one day singing along to Golden Brown this woman sings
"lays me down with my mashearons"
My mum was confused, apparently the woman refused to believe it was mind she runs but couldn't tell my mum what a Mashearon was either.

@toboldlygo I was once accosted in the wine section of Sainsbury's by a lady wanting help to locate a bottle of Piney Greece for her friend. The friend had written her a list of bottles to get, with Piney Greece being item no. 1.

Took me about 10 mins to work out she wanted Pinot Grigio, and a further 30 secs to suppress the middle class urge to shriek: "How frightful! Wouldn't she prefer a 2007 Macon-Villages instead?" grin

Just as well I didn't have time to get to item 2 on the list smile
