Just a few suggestions that come to mind:
Mashed Potatoes
Tahini
Eggs
Mayo is eggs, no?
I'm not who you think I am.

Mayo contains eggs, but eggs aren't mayo.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Adults that speak with a lisp or other speech or language disorder.

You would prefer that they used sign language?!

No. Go for some speech therapy. (Should have been done at a young age).

If they are adults it is often too late. Also, therapy can't fix every single case.
Feelings don't care about your facts

Agreed. Not every single case, but I would think that a vast majority could have been treated when they were younger. I am not saying anything is wrong with the individual (though I've seen adults work hard on changing their accents), but I grew up at a time and environment where speech therapy was no where as common as it is today, but parents spent time and effort to get their kids to pronounce things correctly.

Ummm...its up to the parents of the kid to get him therapy. A kid will never ask for a speech therapist. Your pet peeve should be the parensts of these people.

Ok. I guess that is what I meant. Though who should I take the pet peeve of misspelling "parents" to? ;)

I hope you're never in that position.
