The Misnomer

Following yesterday's conversation about virile, viral, and virulent regarding "Videntes stellam" (confession time: I was confusing virulent for virile), Sadie and I had this conversation:

Me: I've decided to change my screen name to Dr. Vocabulary.
Sadie: Wow, that's a misnomer.
Sadie: Wait, do you know what a misnomer is?

Hilarity ensued.

I suggest Dr. Malaprop for a screen name.

Misnomer is who all guys dread meeting at parties...

When I first read glanced at this I thought it said "Hillary ensued" instead of "Hilarity ensued". I was genuinely scared for a second there.
