Obama's mondegreen

Buffy almost cried when she saw this.

  1. That's the saddest thing I've ever seen... poor elf. In fact, that's about exactly how I feel these days.

  2. My favorite mondegreen is from "Kokomo" (Beach Boys):

    To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

    misheard as

    Vermont’s unique, Vermont’s a rotten state

    I have a friend, Mandy Green, whose name is a mondegreen of "mondegreen.” She wrote a kids' book, "Gazoon High Twizzle," about a mondegreen of "gesundheit whistle," which means whistling after a sneeze. See it in animation at
