Misheard Today

“Ninety year old lobster pleads guilty to racketeering…”

Uh… not quite. Real story here. Too much grading, I think.


  1. Heh. When I saw that headline, I first thought “globster”.

  2. A lobster that old would be a little tough…which is why it got in trouble in the first place!:-)

  3. K. A. Laity says:

    Damn tough crustaceans!Globster…Blogster…? Criminals running rampant!

  4. The Queen says:

    I get the same effect visually when I’m scanning too fast in a used books store….the enticing-sounding ‘Caribbean Beef Fetishes’ turned out to be the rather mundane ‘Caribbean Reef Fishes’….

  5. K. A. Laity says:

    Mmmm — Caribbean Beef Fetishes! I swear the NPR guy really did say “lobster” and I actually heard it right (though clearly it was the wrong word). Trying to find the words to Cheryl’s birthday song today, I ran across a page with misheard lyrics, in this case Cibo Matto’s “Birthday Cake,” which made me laugh a lot.”‘Scuse me while I kiss this guy…”or”Every picture tells a story, doughnut…”

  6. You mean it wasn’t “doughnut?”
