Don’t get defensive with this joke. I mean no a fence.
A while back my Lead Pastor, Worship Pastor and I were talking about misheard Lyrics. As friends, we busted up laughing. There are so many songs out there that it is easy to mishear some, and when you do it can be funny.
So I want to share with you my a list of 10 misheard lyrics that I think are super funny!

And my number one is….
There is a lot of buzz going on about Spider-Man lately. It brought in over $1 Billion in the box office, making it the third Marvel movie this year to do so. With this to say, the Marvel and Sony agreement have not been looking so good, and it appears that we might not see our friendly neighborhood Spidey in an MCU movie…at least anytime soon.
Spider-Man: Far From Home was an awesome movie in my opinion! The acting was great, and Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio was a very good cast (Even though I had been hoping for Bruce Campbell as Mysterio for like 10 years) Far From Home has been out of theaters for some time now and hitting DVD/Blu-Ray release at the end of this month. This post has some spoilers, so you are warned.
The controversy over the Sony-Marvel deal wasn’t the only thing with Spider-Man that gave us trust issues. This was a movie is packed with secrets. Peter struggles to keep his identity as Spider-Man a secret. Mysterio keeps his true powers and motives a secret. We discover a huge secret about Nick Fury in the end credits scene. It’s hard to find the truth in all of this.
Did you know Spider-man comes up with great witty comebacks because with great power comes great response ability?
Disney’s live-action Aladdin is due to hit video release here in September. While I have not seen it, I do know that I, as a child in the 90’s, loved the original animated movie, so I’m willing to give this a shot. If you have never seen either one of the Aladdin movies then I don’t know what you are doing with your life, because the animated is a movie classic that had some really great talent and takeaways. Anyways… I bring this up because I have been in a lot of conversations lately about prayer, and what it really means to pray to God. You may be asking yourself “John how does Aladdin have anything to do with prayer?” Allow me to explain. I believe how we view God, reflects how we interact with Him. I have a lot of analogies on how a lot of people view God, and one of them is the view of God as this all-powerful genie that is here to grant us wishes.
Aladdin: You’re a prisoner?
Genie: It’s all part and parcel, the whole genie gig.
[grows to a gigantic size]
Genie: Phenomenal cosmic powers!
[shrinks down inside the lamp]
Genie: Itty bitty living space!
This is one of my underdog dad jokes. You might not think it is funny, but it is funny even if it is against all odds.
I don’t know what to say…..
