Thread Name: And Finian's Mondegreen
Subject: RE: And Finian's Mondegreen
Apprentice: That is the funniest collection of mondegreens I have seen. One might note that "turkey" for "Turk he" actually appears in print in _The Coffee House Song Book_.
As to the initial song, cf. "The Bum on the Rods and the Bum on the Plush". The question whether the idle poor or the idle rich are a greater burden on society is one of which, I firmly believe, there will never, ever, be objective consideration.
