“I Wanna Hold Your Ham” and Other Hilarious Misunderstood Song Lyrics Grace These Unique Coasters
There’s always that one song that makes you pause mid-belt and think, “Wait, what are they saying?” To commemorate these often-hilarious misunderstandings, artists Eve Trester-Wilson and Kristen von Minden printed commonly misheard lyrics on these unique 4-inch-by-4-inch cork coasters. You can find two different sets of six featuring either mistaken greatest hits or classic rock lyrics on UncommonGoods for $25.
In the classic rock set, you’ll find a blasphemous take on a Beatles staple with “I wanna hold your ham.” And for the greatest hit set, you’ll get Rihanna’s misheard “We found love in a soapless place,” along with "Hit me with your pet shark," which is obviously wrong but not necessarily worse than the Pat Benatar original.
Once you’ve got your coasters, you can create your own misheard tunes with Major Scale Music Wine Glasses, which are available in sets of two ($68) and eight ($245). Marked with music notes, simply fill your glass to the desired line and run your finger around the rim. Once you have it down, you can play songs like “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and more.
