Mrs. Malaprop

Co-worker ordering breakfast on phone: Yes, scrambled with potatoes and toast. Oh, and gimme a large Tropicana. Do you have immune deficiency? Cool, yeah, gimme that. Thanks, bye.

Me: Um, immune deficiency?

Coworker: Yeah? So? Oh, wait. What did I say?

Me: You said "immune deficiency". I think the brand is called Immunity Defense.

Both: (Uncontrollable giggling for two minutes.)

When his breakfast arrived from Cafe Metro, the computerized ticket said:
