Amusements in Mishearing

So the other day I'm making dinner and we're listening to The Current. On comes the Teddy Bears with Iggy Pop singing Punk Rocker with the "I'm a punk rocker, yes I am" chorus.

Ella asks me (from the next room) what he's singing. I tell her. She is clearly confused. Turns out she thinks it's "I'm a plump rocker, yes I am." Which is funny in its own right, but extra so given Iggy's decidedly non-plumpness:

Iggy. Dude. Eat a donut or three.

a plump rocker! That's so funny. In kindergarten, Max told us that his teacher's daughter was a magician in Passachubo. Really, she's a musician in Massachusets (she's a fiddler - plays with Uncle Earl now, among other things). We still laugh about it!
