My kids have been an endless source of funny misunderstandings... like Owen and his confusion over the "Batman smells" version of Jingle Bells. He heard his friends sing it at one point and decided to sing it to us. He had most of it right
Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg, the batmobile lost a wheel...
but then sang out ...
and the joker played ballet
( just in case you have had the distinct pleasure of never hearing Jingle Bells defiled in this way it is supposed to say "and the joker got away").
Both my husband and I had a hard time not bursting into laughter at that point. We tried to tell him the right line but he was SURE the joker played ballet! Apparently playing ballet is just as bad in Owen's mind :) .
