Are there any words that you don't come across often, that your brain tends to wildly misinterpret? For example, I have no idea what a hackey sack is, but whenever I hear the words, I get this mental image of a sort of burlap sack filled with all sorts of minging slime and harbouring various diseases, primarily sexually transmitted, with an overall flavour of gonorrhoea. And yes, I realise that is a weirdly detailed image.

EDIT: I am now fully informed as to what a hacky sack is, thanks to you lovely people (although I clearly still cannot shake the gonorrhoea associations). The question of your own misinterpreted words still stands.
