The president of Mars is coming.

"The president of Mars is coming in January," my supervisor announced during the group's end-of-the-year lab meeting. Everyone hushed while we mulled over what she said. Just as she was about to give instructions in preparation for this guest, I blurted, "Are there people in Mars now?!?" 

It took her a moment to realise that I misunderstood her statement. She replied, "Mars, the chocolate, not the planet!"
