Pomplemousse (French for grapefruit) -- I can still crack up my old grad school buddy at any time with this word.

"Duty" is in my top 5.
It's all because of the NewsRadio episode where Dave is practicing a speech in front of Catherine, Beth and Milos the Janitor.
Milos hears "duty" and starts laughing his harsh Balkan accent:
"Ha, ha, ha! Very funny! 'Duty!' Very funny! You have my vote." (or something very close to that.)

@lumpthar: I second the vote for "Duty"
I was sitting in an AP history class back in my high school days. There was this one lecture where my teacher said "duty" about 100 times. I was practically cracking up... It was just one of those days where I was tired to the point of hysterics... but I still remember it and it was the first word taht came to mind when I saw this question haha.

Pagina. Correctly pronounced pah-hee-na. It's spanish for page. Of course I pronounce like vagina but with a p. haha!!

Kaugummi which means chewing gum in German. I always picture it in my head as cow-goo-me.

Montage. I love that word. I crack up anytime it's used or I'm able to use it.

Duty for me as well. Torts prof said it on an almost daily basis and I almost laughed aloud more than once.

I'm pretty mature.

Armadillo. But then, I substitute the letter D for the second L. I've said it so often that way, I'm not sure I can pronounce it correctly. Embarrassing at times.

"Penetration"

I was at a Model UN Conference last year and one of the issues was "internet penetration in developing countries". Never has the word penetration ever been mentioned so many times in a classroom over a 2-day period.

Oh and "Period"

Trombone makes me laugh as well. Because I always call someone who plays the instrument a "tromboner". Yes, I spent 5+ years playing in an orchestra.

It just sounds so ... British :)

Pujols. As in Albert Pujols of the Angels. Pooholes.

Macerate, Masticate, and exacerbate. Best part? Before becoming Besties with my current Best friend, these words were nothing but words. I only laugh because I think of HER and her reaction every time I use any of these words in everyday conversation with her.
Oh, and Australia. This is also because of the Bestie. Wow, she has seriously permeated my brain... :)

I crack up like a madman when somebody says moist. No idea why.

Oh, and húmedo- the Spanish translation of moist.

vote-for2vote-against

I forgot "syzygy" and "masticate".

@papayaportals: I'm with you. Moist is the word that always gets me. It just sounds so wrong. It cracks me up.
