When my aunt was young (she was old enough to read, though), she saw a sign that said "Union Plaza" and, without thinking, said "Look, Onion Pizza!" :lol:

My sister, when she was younger, pronounced the word puddle like piddle. Once, while jumping in one, she stated "I jumped in the PIDDLE!" By the way, piddle is a term for pee.

There's a quote in Dissidia Final Fantasy that Onion Knight says (I think it might be "Star strike!") that many people mishear as "Dorks unite!"...

Does it have to be something you actually heard differently, or can it be something you heard out of context and understood differently?

If it can be both, I had a great one happen to me just this morning,

The food service business I work for has employee posters distributed that ask, "would you serve it to your family?" It's about getting all the employees to be part of quality control.

Apparently this morning, while I was upgrading some IT equipment on location, the crew made some test food with product that was a little old.

I came around the corner just in time to hear "no, that's disgusting! Would you serve that to your family?" said mockingly, and I started laughing.

I told them, "I know that question's about the product, but I only heard that part of the conversation and I'm laughing because it sounds like you could be talking about literally anything. Like you could have walked in here and found a mess that [guy #2] made on the floor, and asked him 'would you serve that to your family?!?' " They laughed.

Then guy #2 looked at guy #1 and said, "no, but I would serve that to your family." :lol: :lol: :lol:

I misheard the Rolling Stones lyric "I'll never be your beast of burden" as "I'll never see your pizza burning." 8O

So, what did you do? :lol:

Well, I gave it a nice, firm tug...
Actually, I asked him if he said "grab my d*ck" or "deck." Jokes about hearing aids quickly ensued (as always).
Still not as bad as the friend (who's afflicted with a rather severe speech impediment) who informed me of his desire to purchase a lathe. I swore I heard him say "I want to get laid." I told him that there are brothels and rock concerts to satisfy his burning desire. It only became clear what he said when this utterly horrified expression comes over his face (he's much more straight-laced than the rest of us) and a tremendous roar of laughter emanated from the other friends.

Correct lyrics :
"Gypsies,tramps and thieves,
The people come around to lay their money down"

Misheard by someone as :
"Gypsies,Chimpanzees,
The people come around to lay their monkey down"

Misheard lyrics:
"El pollo baño felicidad." {Happy bathroom chicken!}

Real lyrics:
"Prospero año y felicidad."

Venus:

"I'm your Venus," misheard as "I'm your Penis."

I could go on and on with Mondegreens, a lot of them with questionable language.

There are a lot of times I mishear things and ask people to repeat lately. Sometimes I feel like my ears are plugged.

"You picked a fine time to leave me, loose wheel!"

When it comes to important issues, I ask for clarification frequently. I don't want to make any kind of mistake that could potentially delay me any more.

Euthanasia.

I thought people were saying, "Youth in Asia" and wondered what could be so controversial about being a young person on a particular continent.

The first reggae song I ever heard on the radio (back when reggae was new) was "Stir it Up" by Bob Marley.

He pronounces the chorus line "steer it up, my darling, steer it up".

But I thought he was singing "Celia...my darling. Celia".

Frankly I kinda like my version better. Its at least as romantic.

Also from the late seventies I used to hear the avant garde German band Kraftwerk doing "Autobahn".

Kinda proto techno music with occasional chant-like robotic "singing". It sounded to me like they were singing "fun, fun, fun, on the autobahn....".

The actual words are German: "fahrfen fahrfen fahrfen auf zei autobahn" (or like that), which simply means "driving, driving, driving, on the autobahn".

Again I kinda like my version better! Lol!

About a decade and a half ago there was a Puff Daddy song in the charts with the chorus:

"We ain't goin' nowhere
We ain't
goin' nowhere."

I heard the second and third lines as "We ain't... porno ware!"

So he was basically going on about how he wasn't an adult website?
