Thread Name: any new mondegreens?
Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
Just got these from Facebook posts - not mondegreens from songs but mondegreens nonetheless:

Reported widely in Australia after a flood: "30,000 pigs SWEPT DOWNRIVER"
Many newspapers picked it up and ran with the story.
Actually the original person had reporting it had said, "30 sows and pigs were swept downriver."



Someone called a Wal-Mart bakery to order a decorated cake for a going-away party for someone who was moving.   The beautifully decorated cake was embossed with icing reading, between the lovely rosettes:

Best Wishes Suzanne
Under Neat that
We will Miss you


Can you figure out what the person ordering the cake actually said to the Wal-Mart employee taking the order?
