Mondegreens (which is how I landed upon The Ants are my Friends)

A Mondegreen is the mishearing of a popular phrase or song lyric. Named for what appears to be the most misheard lyric around, KissThisGuy is perhaps the largest archive of misheard lyrics. Also check out Kathleen Gallagher's little collection. In Song lyrics can take on a new meaning, Linda Fink explores the etymology of the word and campaigns for its inclusion into the OED. Still interested? A Google Search can give you a lot of pages to feed on.

And in this mess, I found a rather informal introduction to blogs.
