Don (walsfeo) | 37 comments I'm glad I wasn't the only one who heard Barrier Sword as the name of the segment. Heck, even knowing it's supposed to be called Bare Your Sword, I still can't hear that.

Now that I know what they were going for, at least I don't feel like I'm on the outside of a joke.

Vance | 362 comments The famous one was Ozzy Osbourne always thinking Hendrix was saying "Excuse me while I kiss this guy"!

terpkristin | 4120 comments Weird, until I heard the email, I never heard it as anything but "Bare Your Sword." But now it's all I heard.

Must be like the arrow in the FedEx logo. Once you see it, you never don't see it.

Eric Gardner | 113 comments The one that blew my mind was the Blondie song Heart of Glass. I thought she was saying "once you lose trust love's gone behind" but she's saying "mucho mistrust love's gone behind" I actually like my version alot better :/

Lol, I was just going to say that. Don't look up lyrics to Pearl Jam or Tori Amos. You'll just be disappointed/confused.


Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 2839 comments How about the Cranberries "Free to Decide" - when it was on the radio and I was young, I would sing along... "I'm freezing inside, I'm freezing inside." I thought it was about being coldhearted to love, and didn't know for years that it was a political commentary.

With Tori I've never had any trouble understanding each individual word she sings. It's the part where they're supposed to form coherent sentences. I mean:

"Me pureed sanitarily Mr. Sulu
Warp speed
In the springtime of his voodoo"?

Gene Wolfe knows what that means.

Dennis | 90 comments I always thought it was "Bury your sword...", which seemed a little too macabre. After the segment's over, I would picture V and T turning away from a pile of skewered listener feedback.

I think I like that better.
