Heard in the last couple of days:

1.  "Ivanka Trunk" --- is there a name for this type of phonetic mistake?

2.  a Nissan ad referred to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration" as /'nit s@/

3.  we're used to the large petroleum companies being referred to collectively as "Big Oil" but plural?
