Malapropisms.. Know Anyone Who Does This?

The 'Sale vs. Sell' thread got me going on it.

I work with a guy who screws up his words from time to time.. funny shit to say the least and always gets a laugh.

Here are a few actual examples from him... he's a good guy though.

"You'd have to be an extortionist to fit in there" *contortionist

"They don't want to be held reliable if it breaks" *liable

"I would just walk in and pronounce yourself" *announce

"He's got one of those decimal meters to measure sound" *decibel


There are a few others I cant think of right now. Has anyone caught this type of cross-linguistic from others?
