What a gay day!
When I was learning German at school our teacher, Mr Sprake, told us of a time he was in Germany on holiday, where they were enjoying very sunny, warm weather. He attempted to comment to his German friend how 'humid' it was that day by saying Es ist sehr schwul heute. Unfortunately, the word schwul when mis-pronounced means homosexual instead of humid, so he ended up sounding like Larry Grayson, saying 'What a gay day!'
Editor's note: Just a case of an extra couple of dots! Adding an umlaut to the 'u' in schwül and pronouncing it slightly differently, gives you the word for 'humid'.
