France Is Bacon


These kinds of things are called “mondegreens” because once someone (I don’t know who) died and “they laid him on the green.” One of my sisters taught me this less-known factoid.
Here’s mine:
When I was little I thought that nipples were nickels, which caused a great deal of mirth when it came out (and embarrassment for my 5- or 6- or 7-year-old self . . . ah well). Nickels made sense to my child brain, being round and kind of flat. What did I know? I was just a kid! :slight_smile:


When my kids were little they used to say ‘bumocks’ rather than ‘buttocks’…which I loved and of course it makes perfect sense too.

Many years ago my wife and I were being shown an apartment by the landlord who was Chinese and spoke with a heavy accent. My wife was pregnant and we had our other young daughter with us as well. We began talking about how great it will be when our two kids could play together and be friends and the Chinese gentleman said “Yes…unless there is sniveling rivalry”…he meant of course sibling rivalry…we held our laughter in until we had left.
