    Making fun of our mistakes!

    Hey everyone! I think everyone makes mistakes and when learning a new language some of these mistakes can be extremely entertaining. I've been learning foreign languages for a while and I can tell you I have made some beauties.
    For example while in Japan I wanted to comment how my mother in law had such a large and spacious cupboard (oshiirei) but i pronounced this word slightly incorrectly and said (oshiri) which means "behind". So anyway my wife had a good laugh at my expense. But hey, I remember my mistake and have learnt from it plus I have a funny story to tell!
    Anyone else got any good ones?
