Weekend Discussion Thread: Your Favorite Misheard/Misread Line

Alert regular MSTie suggests:

Best/Worst/Most Confusing misheard/misread/misunderstand line of dialog (sometimes known as a Mondegreen).
Without a doubt, the “Idiot Control Now” song in Pod People is one giant Mondegreen.

Many of these come from bad sound or out of focus visuals.
One of my favorites, from early in “Warrior of the Lost World,” is when Joel decides a title card says “All the gummy mints have colitis.”

What’s your favorite?

And PLEASE keep sending those topic suggestions!

    Merlin’s Shop of Mystical Wonders –

    The kid playing with the toy monkey has to the numero uno misunderstandable line of all time, but maybe it wasn’t the kid who was speaking. Maybe it was the evil cymbal monkey pulling a “Devil Doll” on the situation? Was the monkey actually working for Putin? Hmmm!

    Either “Corn Job” in Gamera Vs. Guiron or “Pig Sticker” from Hobgoblins. There are too many to mention but these get me every time.

    These are my 2 favorites!!
