Oh, how I chortled when I read this submission to our Reduce Idiocy campaign! And then I went back to drinking my tea with my pinky finger in the air:

Once, when I was in medical school, we were discussing the muscles of the face and, in reference to the eye, someone referred to the orbicularis oris. How we laughed because, of course, she meant orbicularis oculi!
