Misheard (or warped) carols

Gotta love this time of year, with all the singing, the goodies, the presents and at least that momentary sense of "peace on earth, goodwill toward men". But of course with that Niles twisted sense of humor it is also fun to (sometimes deliberately) mishear or invent Christmas carol phrases.

Among my favorites from comic strips:

Pogo -

1) Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla, Walla, Wash an' Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

2) Good King Sauerkraut, LOOK OUT
on your feets uneven...


One Big Happy -

Olive, the other reindeer...

and then my own inventions -

1) Oh crazy mother Mary...

2) The King is born, oh well...

Don't get me started on twisting carols - that's one fertile playground for a warped mind. Snopes.com has a nice selection of seasonally appropriate mondgreens:

The Red and the Mondegreen

Ack! The Yulbie Forest is on fire!
