We've had some doozies.
I'm naming this the 'Granite' poll because that one gets my vote.
Granite - translates to granted
Also in the running:
paddle lock - translates to padlock
peddle stool - translates to pedestal
"you're being irrational with your rational" - translates to "you're being irrational with your rationale"
Remember: it's much funnier when it's either unintentional or an actual misuse. We have a lot of people here that don't use English as their first language. This thread is not intended to make fun of them.
What are some of your favorites?

I saw "for all intensive purposes" this morning. In English that's: "for all intents and purposes".
Of course, JONDRA for "genre" is the category leader.

But that was on xpt, so it's why I didn't list here. Not to mention that the poster of that is a friend of mine. ;)

Ah, what the hell...
No reason to limit this to ADT. The internet is your playground. Bring me examples of American (or Canadian) people's failure to grasp the English language.

I just find it hilarious that someone besides me noticed someone using "granite". I noticed Teagan use it on that big drama thread a couple of weeks ago.

I was in a comic book shop and I was talking about food with someone. I wanted to go eat a fajita. (So this isn't an English fuck up, whatever I hope you laugh).
Some woman came up to me and told me that I should not be talking about "that" in public.
It took me a while but I finally figured out that she thought I was talking about vaginas.
If you butcher the pronunciation of the word "fajita" you can see where this came from.

I'll fess up. When I was growing up and people asked me how I could eat so much food and not gain any weight my usual reply was "I don't know I guess I just have a fast metalibism.

I just did the Click to feed rescue animals thing (on World News and Nonsense). Today's little doggy adoption story in the middle of the page is an ADORABLE little dog that followed someone all the way home when she was out mountain biking. The dog had fleas galore and "a staff infection," etc.
Speaking of etc. -- The people at our local Mail Boxes Etc. used to answer the phone "Mail Boxes Eksetera."

When the band INXS first came out, I told a friend that I loved the new song by the band, but pronounced it 'Inks'.

I still call them "Inks", Tricia!
And the rap group G-Unit as "Gunnit".
Put me down as another "granite" fan.

Friends -
I realize that little kid word mangleizations, (how's that for a made up word?), is a whole 'nother subject, but I think my sister made it all the way to 15 years old before "spaghetti" didn't come out as "pissghetti".

I said 'cimmanon' till I was about 10 I think.

Well, not exactly what you're looking for but I've seen more than a couple of people refer to Brandon Iron as Brandon Irons. I guess they think he's Jeremy's brother or something.

I never understand the mixup. Brandon Iron is a strong, powerful, virile name. A guy like that is a cowboy riding into the sunset smoking Marlboros. Brandon "Irons" turns it into a verb whereby I am starching shirts in a sweatshop with a mixture of steam and perspiration making my shirt stick to my skin. Who do you think I'd rather be?

I did the question mark thing cause I thought I read it there in some rant about alt porn
It could be viral
I see so many of them and now that I'm on the spot I'm drawing a blank! We should make this sticky though, I know I'm guilty of a few.

I have to admit for a long time I didn’t know if it was backround or background
I also thought for a long time it was ends meat, not ends meet.

I've always thought your name was a pun, like "brandin' iron", and that your Brandon Iron lettering is like a branding iron, about to brand the ass of some girl.

Not fair, because English is her second language, but I always get a kick out of my friend's letters, and this came from an email she sent this morning:
