Pronunciation: mis-in-ter-pre-face-tion

Sentence: Jase was the king of misinterprefacetion, especially when it came to women. One day he thought he saw a "come hither" look on Miss Muffet's face and thought he might get lucky. In reality it was a look of horror because of a spider that sat down beside her (spiders creeped her out). So when he smiled at her she shivered and ran away, leaving him totally confused.

Etymology: misinterpretation: to interpret, explain or understand correctly + face
