Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to provide the common phrases or words that the following punished misdefinitions refer to. For the shorter answers these are like cryptic crossword clues. Example: body building might be defined as the morgue. The numbers tell how many letters are in each word of the answer. Where it provides a clue, single word answers are broken down into part-words: means the answer is a 10-letter word made up of elements of 6 and 4 letters. My answers are at the back of this issue, but other answers may be possible.
