** A SundayStrip during the 1988 Presidential elections had candidates UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush, Michael Dukakis and Bill D. Cat each [[http://web.archive.org/web/20080719170850/http://tafkac.org/songs/louie_louie_real_words.html translate]] the notoriously IndecipherableLyrics of "Louie Louie" based on what they could understand, as if it would tell the public something about them all. Since the ad was sponsored by Bill's [[FictionalPoliticalParty Meadow Party]], it takes jabs at Bush ("Iran-Contra thing makes me phlegm") and Dukakis ("Kitty she leads me everywhere") while saying Bill's translation, half of which outright defies transcription, "revealed a simple honesty".

* In a version of the Christmas song "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" sung by Creator/JohnDenver and Series/TheMuppets, Miss Piggy ends up interrupting the song when Gonzo sings "Now give us some figgy pudding", thinking he said "''piggy'' pudding". He has to explain that he said ''figgy'' as the pudding is made of figs though, in annoyance, he mutters "and bacon".

* Sam Cooke's "Twistin' the Night Away" had an interesting lyric. "He's dancing with the chicken slacks." What the heck are chicken slacks?! (actual lyric is "he's dancing with the chick in slacks"). A Boston-based soul band, The Chicken Slacks, would later name themselves after the mondegreen and further reference it with a bumper sticker they sold at early shows: "I Danced With The Chicken Slacks".

* In one ''{{Partiallyclips}}'' comic, a musician realizes (mid-performance) that the lyrics to ''[[Music/TheBeatles Eleanor Rigby]]'' isn't "Picks up her eyes", which ruins his interpretation that Eleanor is some kind of alien. This completely ruins his appreciation of the song.
