Miss Lead

When I was a youngster, I got a copy of Flannery O'Connor's The Violent Bear It Away. I misread the title as The Violent Bear Is Away, and I thought it was a story about a killer grizzly.

When Stephen King's Silver Bullet came out, I read it on the theatre marquee as Stephen King's Silly Ballet, which, come to think of it, would have been a far more enjoyable viewing experience.

Years later, my mind insisted on hearing the chorus to Snoop Doggy Dogg's "Murder was the Case" as 'Murder! Murder was the cake that they gave me.' One of these days, I'm going to learn to bake me one of them murder cakes.
