Story about this misheard lyric by: Rage Onyx

I thought the whole song was about food shopping, until a friend explained that it's 'too phat', not 'too fat'. And 'super bon bon' isn't referring to tasty chocolate treats. I think I feel a parody coming on!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The goat chewed up, It was a tin can
The goat shat out, it was a Ford Sedan
Why They're Nonsensical:
This few first lines are the only ones in the song that remotely make sense! The rest is pure nonsense. (There are one of my favorite bands though!)

Hidden Messages:

""The Bug""
This song was written specifically for the soundtrack for "Batman & Robin", which starred George Clooney. Toward the end of the song, a few seconds after frontman Mike Doughty says, "Check it out now/One time!", he repeats the phrase, "George Clooney is Satan" several times. It's hidden by a wall of noise, but pretty easy to decipher if you're listening for it.
