“A malapropism (also called a Dogberryism) is the use of an incorrect word in place of a word with a similar sound, resulting in a nonsensical, often humorous utterance. An example is Yogi Berra’s statement: “Texas has a lot of electrical votes,” rather than “electoral votes”.
Write a story on the subject of your choice that uses malapropisms liberally.
This challenge is one of three in the Literary Devices event for the Winter 2014 Ficlympics. If you enter this challenge, consider entering the other two (Alliteration and Purple Prose) as well.
I couldn’t have wrote it bitter myself, Robert. Or maybe I think, therefore I am, JonB?
Perhaps it is all allure to draw you back into the limelight. All the word’s a vestige, you know . . . and we are simple actors playing apart.
Just standard writer’s solipsism, BiC.
Why do I fell that these challenges were made with my stories in mind?
I’m having the most intense deja vu feeling about this challenge.
Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
