Story about this misheard lyric by: IJGrieve

Yeah, I know how stupid the misheard lyric sounds, but that's what it sounds like. 'Stavage Leakey' sounds like it should be a village somewhere in Dorset.

This cryptofascist mania is silicon deliria, 'Yes', she said. 'You're right, but I like the cafeteria'.

The whole song's just about as crazy as this, this is just my particular fave line.

"The Christians and the Pagans"
The Funny Lyrics:
And where does magic come from? I think magic's in the learning,
'Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are burning.
Why They're Funny:
Earlier in the song, the mother of the family dodges a religious question by exclaiming that the pies are burning. I love the way she references past verses, and the obvious allusion to the Salem trials.
