OK so this guy at work (ever notice how all of my stories start off this way?) wanted me to make a cd for him and he was adamant that i put Nickleback's Ladderboys on there, what? never heard of Ladderboys? yeah i havnt neither, i told him id look for it and wouldnt you know it i couldnt find it anywhere, dude got kinda pissed about it and was further frustrated that id never heard of the song, hes yelling at me but they play it on the radio all the time, then he starts singing it to me, "just actin like we're ladderboys", then i realize he means Animals, haha, I found that amusing as hell.

There are reasons they call me Mad...

And then there's the famous Jimi Hendrix "Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky" or...

Here's what I mean, though.
"Today's headlines and history's judgment are rarely the same. If you are too attentive to the former, you will most certainly not do the hard work of securing the latter." -Condoleezza Rice "My fellow Americans...

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

How does one mistake "animals" for "ladder boys"? I mean, seriously, that boarders on talent.

I've heard of mistaking CCR's "Bad Moon on the Rise" for "bathroom on the right". There are probably at least 15 different versions of "Louie Louie" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit". In Dream Theater's classic "Metropolis Pt1: The Miracle and the Sleeper" I've hear of the lyric "Death is the first dance eternal" being mistaken for "death is the first dancing turtle" (that takes talent, gotta say).

Actually, my username comes from a mis-heard lyric from the beginning of this song:

 

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
held his heart in his hands, and ate of it.
I said, "is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter – bitter," he answered;
"but I like it,
"beacuase it is bitter,
"and because it is my heart."

I have a friend who thought Radar Love by Golden Earring was "Red Hot Leather."

I dream of Beer Head Armies.

They actually post videos of misheard lyrics for many songs with silly imagery. It's where I know the concept from.

Other then that... I barely ever listen to lyrics, so there's not much for me to mishear.

For years I thought it was "Red Eye Love" like he was taking the red eye flights home, or they were having sex on the overnight flight or something.

you know, i couldnt tell you, im kinda wondering about it myself, i mean what is a ladderboy any way? what does this guy think a ladderboy is? what is it about ladderboys that made him feel some connection to the song that he just had to have it, maybe he sees himself as a ladderboy? i really dont know, i'll have to ask him the next time i see him.

and thank you for not making fun of me for the pie thing

My wife is real big into this one, shes made me watch it like 5 times already. Im not as amused with it, I actually like that tune and know the words, so it doesnt make much sense to me.
