heres a good one:

when i was in 10th grade (I attended a modern orthodox jewish school on
Manhattan's upper east side)  a friend of mine had to speak iin front of our
navi (prophets) class about a topic which now escapes my mind..
In the course of his talk, he meant to say "the new version" but what he
ended up saying was "the nude virgin."
