Took a look at it and had to stuff my shirt in my mouth to stop myself from laughing.

I'm going to need a swat team, ready to mobilize, street maps covering the whole of florida, a pot of coffee, 12 jammy dodgers and A FEZ.

Ahh, thank god for limewire.

I downloaded Annie Lennox's version of PH's "Whiter Shade of Pale" and finally head "the miller told his tale."
I never had any idea what I heard before.

they call misheard lyrics "Mondegreens" - apparently there was a song which had a line ...and they laid him on the green" which was misheard as "Lady Mondegreen" and people thought it was that for a while until corrected.

I saw Brian Wilson (Beach Boys) on Saturday and I am sure he sang

"she'll have fun fun fun 'til daddy takes her tea-bag away..."

As a child I was taught the Lord's Prayer verbatim before I could read.
Don't know if it fits in here but I always thought it was:
'Our father, with chart in heaven'
so for a while, I visualised God as having a huge piece of paper with everyone on Earth on it and He was making notes about everything we did.
No one explained it you see but it might account for my sense of guilt which only disappeared about 20 years ago when I was able to apply a degree of rational thought to the whole upbringing thing.......I'm a sad case I know :? but not the victim of an unhappy childhood at all.

You were correct the first time! God has a chart which he then passes to Father Christmas, so that naughty people do not get Christmas presents!
