1. There was a series of pics hanging in a bike shop I used to frequent of one of the guys

who had a drag bike whose front forks broke just below the steering neck welds, sending the entire front end and wheel in one direction, and the rest of the bike and rider in another.

The caption was "You Picked A Fine Time To Leave Me Loose Wheel."

6. Thats too funny! Guesss probably thousands of kids misheard the same thing....Gabe, my nephew also

once brought a family meal to a dead silence when he proudly proclaimed "My daddy shares his cigarettes!"

Sometimes kids make it really hard to keep a straight face

5. I used to hear it that way too, but I also thought Van Halen was singing

about some love affair in Korea. Not very good at hearing lyrics.

7. Just from this thread alone I'd say a lot of kids probably heard it that way....

Too funny!

3. I always thought he said "Four hundred children and a crop in the field"...

no wonder it was a fine time!

I was just a kid then. I misheard lyrics all the time.
