Oh, ok R84, if it's not obvious to you....

Things like "Excuse me while I kiss this guy" and "Alice the Seal" are classic misheard lyrics where many people agree - it's a hilarious shared experience.

But then you have folks like R80 and R82 living in their own world where they probably never listened to these songs at all. Who ever thought Bowie was singing "Mame"? That "F" is well pronounced. "Laverne???" That "S" is very well pronounced. R77 claims to have heard "My Scrotum" instead of My Sharona. That is simply a teenage boy calling from the past with a silly bit of body humor, and nobody else would have heard Scrotum instead of Sharona.

R65 claims to have misheard "Double Anal in a Double Bed". No they didn't. That's probably the worst example here.
