Say What? "What did you murder?"

Got this from a friend who had this funny encounter with her brother...which happened when her brother walked into the kitchen where she was.

Brother: What did you murder?
Her (stared at him for a long while, stammering): I...I don...I...I don't know what you are talking about!
Brother: you murdered something
Her: I did not!
Brother: Yes you did. What did you murder?
Her: I don't know. What the hell are you talking about? I didn't murder anything or anyone!
Brother: Oh! No, I said m-u-t-t-e-r (word fingerspelled to her). What did you mutter?
Her: Ohhhhhhhh! You scared me for a second!

You need to make a list of all the hilarious things that are mis-read.

ADSL - thankfully, it wasn't me that this happened to. ;)

GoE - I do try...but sometimes I just forgot to write them down. Quite a bunch of "Say What" moments lost to the fog of lost memories.
