Subject: RE: any new mondegreens?
LOL, DMeG, I think I like "Sugar Plump fairy" Better than "Sugar Plum"...

Total trivia point: Up through the 1800's what we now call "raisin" were what was referred to as "plums" ... so "Plum Pudding" was actually flavored with raisins....

So sugar plums were probably raisins coated in sugar, and maybe cinemon... talk about redundant!
