When I was a little kid there was a short on Sesame Street about the letter G. At the end the guy said something like "and G also stands for (starts cracking up) Giggle! (bursts out laughing)". For the longest time, I misheard "giggle" as "eagle" and didn't get why he said that, as even as a kid I knew that was wrong, or what was supposedly so funny.

I thought the word "melodramatic" was actually "mellow-dramatic", and thought it was a really dumb word since it was basically an oxymoron (how can something be mellow and dramatic at the same time?)
