Uncanned Laughter: Post O’ the Day

I’m responding to a Post O’ the Day!  Here’s the prompt:  “A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny. ”

When I went camping a year ago with friends, we had the radio blasting classic rock at our site.  My friend K, was singing along and she had two lyric missteps that were hilarious and were pronounced at top lung levels.


From Queen’s  Bohemian Rhapsody

“Send a bolt of lightning….very very frightening!!!”


“thunder bolt and lightning….very very frightening”

And the best….  From Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead or Alive

“On a Still horse I ride!!!”  versus “On a steel horse I ride”

She was like…it didn’t make any sense that he was riding on a still horse, however I didn’t know what the lyrics really were…

HA!!  We laughed so hard….And trust me…it took me a while to realize it was STEEL horse too but suddenly it clicked…I was like STEEL HORSE OHHH!!  Like a motorcycle!  NOW I GET ITTTT.

Also my husband (Mr. VS) likes to change the lyrics to all kinds of songs and he has RUINED them for me.  I can only hear his modifications when I hear these songs.  IT SUCKS!!


“Hold me closer Tiny Dancer” is now “Hold me closer Tony Danza”

Or…  “You’re just another brick in the wall” becomes “You’re just another dick and some balls”

Or…”Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light”


“Wrapped up like a Douche, another boner in the night”

Whatevs! My song experiences have been ruined. But I’ve got a cocktail. That’s all that matters.
