Disturbing. And fantastic. But as Renegade said, words don't quite do it justice.

edit:
I've watched it about six times now. The animation is pretty amazing too.

Utterly twisted. (I want more!)  ;D

Put that right up there with the time I heard a "rock band"consisting of 12-year old girls sing Purple Haze at a Girl Scout talent show and end the first verse with: S'cuze me while I kiss this guy! (Note: I've since been told something like 25% of the people polled think that is the actual line in the song. I guess somebody's mother taught them the wrong words. )

Priceless! There wasn't a dry seat in the house after that innocent mistake. :P

Mondegreen is nice :-*

@Stephen - that has to make laugh of the week (and I'm sober :p)


S'cuze me while I kiss this guy! (Note: I've since been told something like 25% of the people polled think that is the actual line in the song. I guess somebody's mother taught them the wrong words. )

I  think from the beginning it was misunderstood. I've read a story -not that long ago, but god knows where- that Jimi had some fun with it and kissed one of the band members on stage when singing it. Was at one of the big festivals, I think.
... just looked in Wikipedia. It says he perpetrated this mondegreen by actually using it as a joke while singing "Purple Haze" live in concert. More details from source here.

A bit of history on "O Fortuna".  See item #4 (NSFW - vulgar language):

http://www.cracked.c...-what-you-think.html

I'm not really sure how accurate the story is; cracked.com is a comedy site after all.

You can tell those lyrics aren't accurate.

Because the cake is a lie.
