Wayne once accidentally substituted one word for another when requesting something. But despite the substitution, he ended up getting exactly what he wanted.

Wayne 1: I'd like a big cornish pasty, please!
Wayne 2: I'd like a massive cornish pasty, please!

Were the two words synonyms or near-synonyms?


Wayne 1: Can I borrow a hat off you?
Wayne 2: Can I lend a hat off you?

Were the two words opposites, but like 'lend' and 'borrow', a load of people don't actually seem to know the difference and use them interchangeably?


Was the word a noun, verb, adjective, adverb? Was it replaced by a word of the same type?

Did he request an object? A service? An answer? A favour?

Did he request this from a friend? Family member? Person working in a shop? In a restaurant? Other professional? A random stranger?

The word he was going to say: one syllable? Two? Three? Four? Five? More?
Same thing for the wordhe accidentily said.

Was he asking for something he didn't want but was forced to get? And since he used the wrong word, he got what he wanted? Like he's a little kid and his mom told him to order vegetables at the restaurant, but he "accidentally" said "cake" instead of "vegetables?"

Is the reason of Wayne's mistake relevant?
Did he request in an office? in a shop? at home? in hospital? at schoo? in other public place?
Did he have to pay for what he requested?
Did he want what he requested?
Was Wayne a politician who wanted more popularity? And said "I request war" instead of "I request peace", but his popularity still increased?

Did he point or otherwise show the demanded object to his friend, so that the friend knew what to give him, regardless of what he said?
Was the object Wayne's? Friend's? Is the object common in household? Did the object have a proper name and also a generic one (like a book and its title)? If yes, did Wayne intend to refer to the object by its generic name? proper name? Did Wayne refer to the object by its generic name? proper name?

Was the reason for Wayne's mistake that he simply made a slip of the tongue? Or did he not know the difference between the 'right' word and the 'wrong' one? e.g. the difference between English and American/Australian, etc, etc?

Did Wayne ask for painkillers using a general description? Like: give me something that could ease my headache?
Does the alternative word is a name of an object? Was the alternative word totally unsuitable in the whole sentence?

From here, it would help immensely to have a passing knowledge of a certain foreign language. But my sense is it might be solvable even if you don't.

Was 'cabeza' heard as 'cerveza', and a hair-of-the-dog cure was duly administered? This is close enough.

******SPOILER*******
After a wicked Cinco de Mayo party, Wayne woke up the following morning with a rotten headache. Walking up to his friend, Alexander Hamilton, he continued the previous night's theme of speaking to each other in Spanish.

He meant to say "Me duele la cabeza" ("My head hurts"), but due to his poor Spanish skills and general discombobulation said "Me duele la cerveza" ("The beer hurts me," roughly). His compatriot took that to mean he was hungover, and gave him some aspirin in any case.

Thanks for playing, all! Be sure to check out my other puzzles, especially the scrund ones, which have appeared to stall.
