I used to work with a guy who had a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from a very prestigious university.
When speaking during meetings, he often used the word “incantation” when what he actually meant was “incarnation”. I have no idea why he did this. I don’t think he did it on purpose but the effect on the unwary listener was…hilarious.
On one memorable occasion, he said this: “The product is able to do what you’re describing but it will require a modified incantation.”
Crickets chirping in the distance.
Many worried, sideways glances all around the table.
It was glorious.
