    Smile Slip of the ear

    Example of a slip of the ear: great ape / grey tape.
    Can anyone suggest any other examples?

    What might be the causes of slips of the tongue?

    My husband had a major slip of the ear during a business executive asked him his opinion of "Ask Jeeves (meaning", and Mr. Ouisch responded "You want my opinion of ass cheese?!"
