The Offspring's, "Burn It Up"
The Funny Lyrics:
I'll dance around the pretty flames
Such a wonderful game!
Why They're funny:
Every time I hear that line, I get images of the lead singer happily leaping around a burning house. It's rather comical, if you envision it. =) But on the other hand he must be careful not to get burnt.

The Offspring's, "Come Out Swinging"
The Funny Lyrics:
Come out swingin', out on your own...
Why They're funny:
It sounds like they're telling some guy to admit that he's gay, but this guy is scared of what his friends and family will think, so the singer tells him to come out swinging.... Also, when I listen to this song, so many funny dances fill my head.

The Offspring's, "Cool To Hate"
The Funny Lyrics:
I don't like nothin' and I like that fine.
Why They're funny:
I just laugh when I hear that. Not sure if it's the double-negative or what; it just makes me laugh.

The Offspring's, "Don't Pick It Up"
The Funny Lyrics:
My friend was kind of hurting for a girl to try
He saw one who looked like Pat on Saturday Night Live
It had a pair of thingies, a moustache too
Why They're funny:
This song never fails to make me at least smile, due to the lovely descriptions...

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 Offspring's, "Pretty Fly For A White Guy"
The Funny Lyrics:
He needs some cool tunes,
not just any will suffice.
But they didn't have 'Ice Cubed'
so he bought 'Vanilla Ice'.
Why They're funny:
This part makes me laugh, but then again the whole song itself seems funny.

The Offspring's, "Self Esteem"
The Funny Lyrics:
I wrote her off for the tenth time today.
I practiced all the thing I would say
But she came over I lost me nerve
I took her back and made her dessert
Why They're funny:
It's funny 'cuz he's saying how much he hates her then he states that he made her some dessert; it just cracks me up!

This is bullsh*t
Why They're funny:
The way Dexter says the line with the swear word makes me smile and giggle.
