Salami

One decent salami and the whole thing’ll end up on some beach in Cuba! Nice! Who’d want to live at sea level? Not I!

You’d think that this was a one off but

I was so proud of him, the way he went to Japan and helped and stayed there, after the earthquake and the salami

Of course there are lots of anecdotes of people thinking they’d heard “a giant salami” and children misunderstanding the word too. But here we have two people who seem to think the word is “salami”. Semantics please!
