Not strictly a Youlgreave, but near enough:

Times Radio newsreader: "The breaking news this lunchtime is that Wales is joining Scotland..."

Wow, that's pretty incredible. Is it going to move north?

[after longish pause] "... in making vaccine passports mandatory".

Oh - I was hoping that in a couple of years I would drive into Lancashire to be welcomed with signs saying "Croeso i Reged".

It's happened again. For the second time today, I've misinterpreted a sentence by mentally cutting it off prematurely. This time it was from a Radio 4 announcer: "Today, his guests are fighting it out in the dishwasher..."

It was actually "in the dishwasher versus kitchen sink debate".

I am suffering from a cold/flu/bug thing. Not that one, if my lateral flow test this morning is correct. So I am blaming that for thinking that an item in Private Eye said that someone had been mistreated by the Department of Work and Penises, not Pensions....

Nope... bearers.

The card thing about working for Royal Mail over Christmas that was on my mat when I came in earlier has a message from someone called Arise and not what I thought he was called when I first picked it up.

I drove through a little town hereabouts and saw an office building with a sign announcing its name, "Bugler", which I misread.

A few years ago that office was offering 'Shopfitting', which I always misread too. It is not much of a step up from shopfitting to buglery.

Aural youlgreave/mondegreen: I was listening to a discussion about things that children ought to learn before a certain age, and one of them was "climatry". Well that's good, I thought, teach them about climate science... but isn't it called "climatology"?

Oops! She said "climb a tree".

Climatry ought to be a word if it isn't.

Modern day indigenous New Guineans use guns manufactured overseas, not gnus...

The face masks I bought from the chemist are reusable, NOT pleasurable.

There's a kink for everything, my good man. Also, some of them do look rather snazzy.
