** Possibly "Eight Days a Week", although Paul variously attributed the title to Ringo and to a chauffeur. Either way, it's an example of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Stumpy, [[CrapsaccharineWorld Smileyland]]'s resident [[TheDitz idiot]], does this quite frequently. For example, in an episode where he goes to a library, he constantly calls it a "liblerary".

Compare and contrast with DelusionsOfEloquence, BluntMetaphorsTrauma, and MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels. Compare and contrast also with the {{Spoonerism}}, where the first letter or syllable is transposed for comedy effect. If the speaker uses the apparently correct words instead but gets hopelessly lost in their train of thought, that's {{Metaphorgotten}}. If using the wrong word is the result of mishearing the correct word, that's a {{Mondegreen}}.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''Series/TheITCrowd'' has Jen and Roy each giving the other a hard time over one. First Jen mistakes "putting women on a pedestal" as "putting women on a pedal stool". Later Roy mistakes "Damp Squib" to be "Damp Squid", justifying it by saying that since squids are already damp that's why it makes sense.
