Funny Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

The Offspring's, "L.A.P.D."
The Funny Lyrics:
They're shootin' little kids with toy guns.
Why They're funny:
The grammar here is actually ambiguous. Are the shooters armed with toy guns, or are the little kids armed with toy guns? If the shooters have the guns, then this is a misplaced modifier, implying that the kids are the ones with the toy guns.

The Misrhymed Lyrics:
She's a gold digger, she's a gold digger
F**king all the white guys and all the Persians
