thinking about the story of ml's coworker who thought the chorus of macklemore's "can't hold us" said "so we put our hands up like the silly can holders"

it's a good story

I also tend to hear "Inna gada da vita" as "In the garden of eden".

it's a classic example but "take the money and run" where steve miller says "that's where they ran into a great big hassle"

it totally sounds like "great big ass****." blew my mind when i found out it was hassle, but i guess it made sense because it was never censored on the radio

Oh yeah.



It's been meme'd to death, but what the lyrics are supposed to be:

Take the path that moonbeams take
If the moon is still awake
You'll see him wink his eye!

What I heard was

Think of Batman pooping snakes
If the moon is still awake
You'll see him when you die!

I thought one of the lines in the Iwatodai Dorm theme in Persona 3 said "less porn" but it's actually "let's party". I think. I don't think the official lyrics are anywhere it is kind of all anyone's guess. Or at least that was the case 8 years ago when I was looking. Regardless I don't think it is actually supposed to be "less porn"

I'm 99% certain Sooyoung's opening line in "I Got A Boy" by Girls' Generation is "She's a cat burglar," but apparently it's "시작해 볼까?" which is pronounced "shijaghae bolkka?" and translates to "Shall we start?"

Sorry, but I still hear "She's a cat burglar."

Now here's a game I know a lot of you guys are fans of....



Seriously, admit it, what do you think this sounds like?

"Thomas Edison fell in trash can"
"Total sits in the gas chamber"
"Havin' sex in the trash chamber"
"Thomas sets in the trash chamber"
"Total sentence in gash years"

Well it turns out that the voice clip actually appeared in a Command and Conquer game, Xenogears just cut it off


Spoiler.
"Total sentence imposed: Ten years in the, state prison"
I personally prefer the random "Sets in the trash chamber"
