The word today is Teddy and here the cute little chap that sits beside my monitor at work, keeping me company all day.
In my last post, I was talking about misheard lyrics. I knew there was a name for this and indeed there is. I remembered it just a wee while ago. They are called 'Mondegreens' because the chappie who named them, heard a poem where the lines go something like ...
"..... they hae slain the Earl of Murray and laid him on the green."
He misheard it and thought it was...
"..... they hae slain the Earl of Murray and Lady Mondegreen".
