Here are some of my favorite mispronounced words of all time. These all come from people in my life:

1. Gooms (as in gums in your mouth and near your teeth)
2. Bajamas (pajamas but with a B?)
3. Fuss-trated (its frustrating having to hear it said this way so often)
4. Baa-yog (is how they say bag on the East Coast and I hate it)
5. Effisode (like how in German all P's are pronounced as F's)
6. Renember (I forget what's wrong with this one...)

That's all I got for now, folks.

Subbosedly instead of Supposedly ugh that one is enough to make me want to yank their head off...

Sorry I am homesick and angry. With Love from Dubai, UAE

oooh oooh oooh! yeah, or suppose-UB-ly!

and what about li-bary instead of libRary?

and what's the deal with changing "d"s to "t"s, like pronouning salad, salit?

and, even more widespread, is the opposite:
"thirty" pronounced "thirdy", etc...

ah, werds...
