My father, a pathologist, used to regularly horrify/embarass my mother, a
medical technologist, in church by singing a line in a hymn as "when angels
prostates fall."

I sympathize entirely.  There was the day I could not articulate
"prostate"; it insisted on coming out "prostrate".  And it was not
due to concern about my own.
