A meaning of a word ruined by mispronunciation

A meaning of a word can be completely changed by wrong pronunciation and that's why a lot of English humour is based on mispronunciation. If you pronounce a word incorrectly it can change the meaning into something which is incredibly funny or just the way you say it may be quite amusing.     There are many words in English which are commonly mispronounced.
