Isn't that what a Freudian slip is?

Discoveria - 2007-02-05: 04:12:00
Yes, I think so too.

Bulletchewer - 2007-02-05: 07:10:00
No, it's not a Freudian slip, it's a Freudianblip mahahahaha...

ErWenn - 2007-02-05: 09:35:00
You know what _I_ think we need a word for? A word for a non-Freudian slip of the tongue. Granted, I don't think Freud thought that they existed, but enough people do that it'd be nice to have a word to differentiate the two situations.

Bulletchewer - 2007-02-05: 10:00:00
I like blaming Freud, the sex-obsessed legend deserves it! Plus, one word is enough, so, next verboticism please.

Hey ErWenn, Thanks for the suggestion! I will see if I can create a definition for that... ~ James
