This is a question Ignorance

I once was in a programming class where the task was "build a calculator". A student did one with buttons 1, 2, 3 all the way up to about 25 and then ran out of space on the screen. We've asked this before but liked it so much we're asking again: What's the best example of ignorance you've encountered?

My old boss the short-arsed sociopath..
..had total ignorance of the English language, often inventing words that didn't exist. We'd start to play 'Boothy's Buzzword Bingo' whenever he was in a meeting. Scoring points for each 'Boothism' spotted.

Common examples of his word gymnastics were:

Escaped Goat/Scapegoat

Sometimes it was uncomfortable to sit in meetings where our Managing Director made a complete arse of himself in front of potential clients.

He got sacked though. Twat.

I used to work for someone who would pepper his sentences with the word "whoa" as in "whoa there, we'd better step back from this and think again".

Trouble is, he pronounced it woe-ah.
