Story about this misheard lyric by: Moem

I thought the person lovingly described in this song might be wearing ill-fitting dentures just like my grandmother. She was always making these sucking sounds. It had become a part of her personality really.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"A Fine Romance (1930's)"
The Funny Lyrics:
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes
Why They're Funny:
When I was in algebra class, my teacher would sometimes play jazz and oldies off an Internet radio station. One day, she turned it on, and while I was doing my homework, this 30s song came on. When it came to this line, everybody in the class just started laughing hysterically. The teacher was clearly embarrassed.
