Misunderstandings

Recommended Posts

Lyrical misunderstandings:

Don Henley - The Boys of Summer = "the poisoned summer". As in "I can tell you my love will still be strong after the poisoned summer has gone"

Macy Gray - I Try - "My world crumbles when you are not there" = "I wear goggles when you are not there"

I can never remember whether it's a light sabre or a life saver. Must have looked it up a dozen times.

I can't remember how it started but I had a long running disagreement with an ex that surfaced periodically for a couple years about what Marsellus Wallace was going to do to Z's ass in Pulp Fiction.

He was going to get 'middle evil' on it apparently.

Too many of these to remember...

From my childhood, I was convinced that Bob Marley and the Wailers had been abducted and experimented on by extraterrestrials: - "I remember, on the spaceship, how they brutalised our very souls" (Slave Driver - the clue was in the name, I guess!).

Also reminds me of these, very silly but made me giggle:

The Bill Oddie one (#4) is particularly brilliant.

"Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, put your hands all over my body"

The Mick Hucknall ones appealed to my peurile sense of humour. The Reading FC thing is pretty random!

I should just copy and paste this from where I wrote it out before. I have a nickname for my partner which our neighbours evidently overheard once believing it to be our name for the cat.

I was chatting to them, and they said "[your partner's nickname] was on top of the shed this morning."

"Really?" (he was at work). "What was he doing up there?"

"Not much. He just lay there for a few hours getting some sun."

You know those times when you can actually hear your own brain working frantically to make sense of something?

"Then he came down and we fed him."

"Oh, right." - Eureka moment arrives.

Lying b***ards ...

Grinning here. I saw a sign like that above one in the shopping centre in Basingstoke last week and remember thinking "That's nice, but how the hell am I going to get it home"

Cue *that* scene from 'Breaking Bad'.

That just reminds me of the Adam and Joe show from eons back where they went into a shop and started eating the '10% extra free' from crisp bags, cereal packets, etc.

As I kid I never got the saying "Making ends meet" (obviously never saw it spelt out). I thought:

Making+Ends+Meat+(8c).jpg

Rather than:

When I was ickle I got really distressed by a news story about haemophiliacs being infected with HIV because the NHS weren't screening their supplies properly.

I was confused about the difference between haemophiliacs and paedophiles...as in I didn't think there was one. I knew what a paedophile was.

Didn't sleep for weeks :(

P

paedophilia.....well that's either a place in america or cream cheese innit??
