    Can the word blooper refer to both a deleted scene of a film and a funny home video? If so, can I be misunderstood if I try to mean one thing, but the listener understands the other?

    In other words, you can't have a true blooper if you created it on purpose.

    Except the end of the Pixar movies. They make those on purpose.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
