Marvelous Malaprops

Recommended Posts

Or should I call it Glorious Gaffes instead?  Regardless, I've decided to start collecting the little inadvertent pearls and gems of these genres I come across. Naturally, I shan't miss the opportunity to comment!

"Eighteen of them attempted...but were quickly napped by law enforcement."

The report doesn't indicate whether the officers handed out blankies as part of this action.

Believe this one resides in a category way past malaprop. It has to be seen to be believed (provided you actually know a bit about the Star Wars films).

Now, that‘s a nice one for me, being an admitting Star Wars fan since Day 1.

Am starting to get the felling when that Star Destroyer passed overhead when I saw Star Wars in 1977. The point here is that Episode IV--A New Hope was the first Star Wars movie released, and it didn't have Episode IV--A New Hope in the title then, either. It was just Star Wars. Given this, the factoid writer is stating an impossibility, not an oddity--because there was NO Star Wars movie Mark Hamill  could've seen before getting involved in Episode IV. Here's the original title segment.
