Gabbai humor

This morning at shul, I had the Levi aliyah. After I was called up, the gabbai started reading the mi sheberach for the kohen, but his eyes had alighted on the wrong paragraph and he continued "sheyaalah lehagbahat hatorah" --- he caught himself and started over, but meanwhile the korei muttered sotto voce: "shenolad bemazal tov", which caused all of us on the bimah to lose it.
