Word Mispronunciation

A recent post by dulciana, along with Lynn's comment to my "chimley" post earlier today, had me thinking about words we mispronounced as children. I said "bo-dell" for "Band-Aid." That one's not too exciting. My little sister was much more interesting: she said "ella-wee" for "elephant" and "hiner" (rhymes with "shiner") for ... behind. As in butt. As in, "That lady has a big fat hiner."

So, I'd love to know ... what are some of the words that you, dear readers, mispronounced as children, much to the amusement of your elders?
