Thread Name: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
Subject: RE: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'

When I first heard Chicken on a Raft I thought it was a reference to naval cannibalism. You know, adrift in a raft, draw straws to see who's for breakfast. I was rather disappointed to learn the real meaning.

A mondegreen I can't get out of my mind is "The Grey Flannel Line."
