Football Mondegreen

Okay, this relates to nothing, but it's funny and the Greg Ellis thread has been pounded to death, no thanks to me.

I'm in my office and Sinead O'Connor's "Mandinka" comes on the radio. It made me think of the popular song mondegreen books that came out a few years ago. Mondegreens are mishearings or misinterpretations of song lyrics. I think the first book was titled, "'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy," a mondegreen of Jimi Hendrix' "Purple Haze" line, "'scuse me while I kiss the sky."

Somewhere in the book is a mondegreen for Sinead's song. Apparently, somebody heard her refrain, "but I do know... Man-din-ka," as "but I do know.... Mike Dit-ka."

I can't hear that song any other way now.
