The Ants Are My Friends

This needs to be shared. It's from a book called "THE ANTS ARE MY FRIENDS" by Martin Toseland, and is full of 'misheard Lyrics, Malapropisms, Eggcorns, and other linguistic gaffes'. I've only read Chapter A as of now (and there's one for every alphabet), but it seems like a great compilation. Anyhow, here's an excerpt:

'"The ants are my friends"

Bob Dylan's 1963 protest song becomes a tribute to his insect friends according to some listeners. Instead of the 'answer' to the song's strident questions 'blowin' in the wind', there are hundreds of his ant friends being blown along, getting in everyon's way, only protected by Bob's friendship. What happens to them when he gets to the harmonica solo is not explained.'
