What is a sentence in which a word is humorously misused

One form is a "malapropism", after the character "Mrs. Malaprop" in a 1775 play The Rivals by Richard Sheridan.

A malapropism (also called acyrologia) is the use of a word that is similar to another word, but creates a meaningless or comic sentence.

Examples :

being "indicted" to supper (invited), or a gift from a famous "philanderer" (philanthropist).

Example of use for comic effect :

"My dear, tonight you look positively ravished." (ravishing)
