Wuthering Heights

Because I'm all about bad taste (but isn't it worse that Morty found this and sent it out?), I thought I'd post a picture of Gary Coleman's casket.

Yes, tasteless, but I'm ok with my blog post choice. I think we all know my level of humour by now. Deal with it.

But the image also brings up Morty (again). We all have an affinity for misheard lyrics and Morty has always had some of the best. One of them was from "Wuthering Heights" - though I don't really know if it was from Kate Bush's version, or Pat Benatar. At this point it doesn't matter.

The actual lyric is: "Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy, come home / I'm so cold...."
Morty's version: "Heathcliff, it's me, I'm camping / I'm so cold..."

While that was funny enough, it was Becky's response that made me laugh and has stayed with me for almost 20 years, and I think about it each time I hear the song:

While laughing she managed to blurt out: "can you just see Mrs. Linton with her Coleman...." and that just made me crack up - and it still does.

Of course, Becca meant a Coleman lantern, not so much a casket cooler.

And you know, talking about lanterns and coolers is still way more interesting than taking about Gary. That's what I'm talkin' about.

Song by: Kate Bush
