Misheard Lyrics

Pat was at my place one evening before we went out for the night. I was watching The Dubliners perform "Hand Me Down My Bible" on YouTube. The lyrics to the chorus are:

"Oh Oh Glory-oh!
I'm the Lord's disciple
Oh Oh Glory-oh!
Now hand me down my Bible"

Pat heard this song and said, "Is he saying, 'Oh Oh Gloryhole'?"

If those had been the lyrics, The Dubliners could have been considered trailblazers in writing songs about deviant sexual practices.

It's true. I've also thought a line in Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson" was "Put it in your pants, you're with your cupcakes".

One of the worst concerts I ever attended was Simon and Garfunkel at the Robin Hood Dell East, back in '85. Far from being an intimate evening of music from a legendary duo, Garfunkel takes the stage with Hasbro's "Simon" memory game and uses it for accompaniment as he sings all the old hits. I mean, "Simon" had only four notes -- none of them minor. It completely ruined "Scarborough Fair"!

Worst thirty-five bucks I ever spent.

I was shocked when the gloryhole got mentioned on the Simpsons - "we invented computers, leg warmers, bendy straws, peel-and-eat shrimp,
the glory hole"

Or, as Mr. Burns might have called it, an exo-erotic panel gap.
