In Which I Am Easily Amused

Another brief post to help me get through crunch time.  I keep looking for an appropriate context in which to bring up this personal mondegreen, and having been unsuccessful for a few years, I'm just going to write about it now.

You see, I can never hear Alanis Morissette's song You Oughta Know without mishearing a particular lyric as follows...

Did you forget about me?

Mr. Do?

Mr. T?

Ah, 1980s nostalgia.  When Alanis Morisette was still on Nickelodeon's You Can't Do That On Television, and arcades were still free of ticket redemption counters.

(FYI, the lyric actually refers to Mr. Duplicity.  But I like my version better.)
