Post your favorite intentional or unintentional misreadings, clangs, wordplays, free associations, dunks, etc.

Ill start with

which I consistently read as "errrrnote" even after figuring out what this terrible ad campaign was supposed to be saying

U R not <general prohibition sign>?

@“captain”#p34972 “u r not [red] e” or “You are not ready”


@“kory”#p34974 lmao

a friend and I send a red D image to each other when signalling readiness, I'm disappointed I didn't figure it out

Was this supposed to be a general PlayStation ad?

@“captain”#p34978 these ads were ALL OVER in the lead-up to the PS1’s release (at least in my neck of the woods, northeastern US) and really fit with the general “edgy” tenor of 90s video game advertising. I specifically remember some giant posters or standees prominently displayed in my local KB Toys. This lame rebus puzzle of an advertising campaign mostly annoyed me, but as a Saturn owner I was already primed to be a hater lol.

Anyway, to avoid turning this into another terrible video game ads thread, another favorite is whenever the renowned philosopher “Thelastophus” is referenced on the show. I’ve been listening to a lot of older episodes lately and I’m glad @exodus is honoring and perpetuating the legacy of horribly excellent misreadings.

Also, “Fighters Megami X”

im not boy & ur not e

Well you already mentioned most of my favorites, ha ha.

I also enjoy calling Sonic R "sonicker" but that one's a bit more of a stretch.

I‘d like to submit one outside of the show’s canon

Thela's Tofus

silenth ill

Nobody has mentioned Tom Braider yet, so there's that one

Lands Talker

The most immediate ones for me are games that use Roman numerals or numbers instead of letters; Final Fantasy VII, more like Final Fantasy Veeeee.

Edit: Also anyway game with Legend in the title I read as Leg End.

when a game has the word “puzzle” in the title I like to replace it with pozole e.g:

Super Pozole Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
Pokemon Pozole Challenge
Pozole & Dragons
Pozole Quest 2
