:lol: I had sort of the same one, since I must not have known what gauze was. I pictured "gozzners" as tongs.

Yeah, also count me in the camp of hearing "gosners." Just assumed it was something used in the medical world.

When I first became an Al fan DTBS was the first album I had, and I couldn't read perfectly, I was only in 1st grade.

I dunno why, but I thought back then that it was "Smiley" creatures from outer space.

Thanks to what my brother was reading at the time, this is what I imagined:

It was never one of my favorites, so I didn't listen to it a ton, but when I did I just had it in my mind from back then that it was Smiley.

Just now with this tour, me going back and listening to it again, I was like, "Wait.... It's Slime!"

Really I dunno how I made that mistake all this time ^^ I feel like an idiot.

One from I'm So Sick Of You that I didn't pick up on until reading Nathan Rabin's blog this morning:

You've got a human body odor
You've got the hair of a box of promotor


I was always pretty sure it wasn't "human body odor," but never figured to look up the correct lyrics.
I have no idea what a "box of promotor" is... :?

I always assumed the lyric was "boxing promotor" in reference to real life notoriously tall haired boxing promoter Don King.

Definitely is hair of a boxing promotor. Best lyric in the song! Great tune all around though.
