Mondegreens and Other Such Things.

One of my favorite words is "mondegreen." (Remember? I'm into etymology, aka word nerd.)

I'll let you in on a little secret - I always thought Hall & Oates (ya know, the 80s sensations who brought us "Maneater" and "You Make My Dreams Come True") was "Holland Oats" - that's right, like some sort of Dutch breakfast.

Those are really embarrassing.

Ok, I sooooo want to comment on the Hall and Oates post with my CL post, but I won't (as hard as it is not to do). I'll maintain some smidgeon of taste here....argh!!!
