* On the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Tales From the Crib" D.W. is telling Vicita the story of the time she began to sleep is a real bed which included the Tibble's story of the scary Arachnar who haunts children that have just gotten a big bed. She tries to reassure Vicita that Arachnar does not exist because he is an "Irving legend", told by one's Uncle Irving, rather than an urban legend. When Vicita points out that she does not have an Uncle Irving, D.W. dismisses him as an Irving legend as well.
** In the episode "Postcards From Buster" D.W. has made several homemade postcards of New York City's famous landmarks, or rather her interpretation of them. They include the "Vampire State Building", "Rocks-of-Falling Center", and the "Statue of Liver Trees".

When Wright had stopped laughing, he gave her the point.

** His line in "First World Problems" ('I'm pretty sure the cookies in this airport lounge ain't gluten free') sounds like "I'm pretty sure the monkey's in this airport lounge ain't duty-free".



* Nelly, "Hot in Herre" has a line misheard as [[Franchise/FridayThe13th "killing like Jason." ]]It is actually "kidding like Jason," referring to Jason Kidd.

* The term was coined by Sylvia Wright in a 1954 essay in ''Harper's'', She describes that as a young girl, she misheard the line "They hae slain the Earl o' Moray/And laid him on the green" from the 17th-century ballad "The Bonnie Earl o' Moray" as "They hae slain the Earl o' Moray/And Lady Mondegreen".

* 1960's folk band The Seekers and solo artist Sonny James both had versions of the song, "I'll Never Find Another You." The line, "There is always someone for each of us, they say" was misheard by Mr. James as "There is always someone to reach across, they say." It works, in a philosophical kind of way.

* Music/BobMarley may inspire this due to his thick Jamaican accent and use of Patois. This troper initially heard the opening line of ''Redemption Song'' as "Oh, the pirate's just a Rabbi...so lie to the merchant ships....". [[note]]REAL LYRIC: "Old pirates, yes, they rob I....Sold I to the merchant ships...." (A reference to the African slave trade, obviously. Rastas also say 'I' to mean 'you', they', etc. as an emphasis on a monist 'We are all one.' concept)[[/note]]

** This troper initially assumed FooFighters was "[[FoodFight Food Fighters]]" (or rather, an XtremeKoolLetterz take on the term. This troper had no knowledge of the titular [=UFO=] phenomenon from WWII, at the time).
