Here's one that cracked me up :-D

"I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."
--Robert McCloskey, State Department spokesman
Here's a neat one on Answering Machine Madness, the disease that plagues all Americans ;-)

Hi, this is John. If you are the phone company, I already sent the money. If you are my parents, please send money. If you are my financial aid institution, you didn't lend me enough money. If you are my friends, you owe me money. If you are a female, don't worry, I have plenty of money.

Was reading my new dictionary, reached the very last page to see what is the last word in the dictionary and say a word "Zyrian". As is my habit, googled for it immediatly.

Reached this page which is quite something! Some people have all the time in the world to do all sorts of interesting things ;-)
A not so new one, but worth a laugh all the time !

A professor of Linguistics was lecturing to an audience about similarities and dissimilarities found among languages. He pointed out that in Russian, the use of a double negative does not alter the intent of the statement but, in English the use of a double negative renders a statement positive. He then pointed out that never does the use of a double positive in English make a statement negative.

A voice from the back of the room shouted, "yeah, right!!!"
