Oh, and bells were often woven into the tails, and sometimes the manes, of the horses during winter time.
I should have been clearer - I know it's bobtails now, but I just thought it was funny that I actually had it right as a kid, and was (wrongly) corrected lol

I used to think it was "Secret Asian Man" instead of "Secret Agent Man"


My parents thought that was hilarious and would never explain it to us why they would laugh when we were little and that song came on

Okay, the Swedish House Mafia song "Don't You Worry Child"

The line is... "See heaven's got a plan for you" but it totally sounds like "Cialis got a plan for you" .. um NO, I don't want an ED medication making plans for me, kthx.

LOL. I used to think it was "See Elvis' got a plan for you.' I looked up the lyrics a couple weeks ago.
