Uhhh...the dollar?


While normally a master of the obvious, I'm at bit dismayed that I missed that one. I guess I was thinking more of the context than the definition...looking for something, Uhhh... "deeper". Or maybe I need to smoke less dope.[/img][/list]

I gotta chime in and trump all y'all. I heard "Washington's on the line" and for the longest time I was thinking that someone was on the phone with the the US government. After reading the lyrics I was just confused.

Now that it's been explained clearly, you might think that I would hear the right words, but that is not the case. I still automatically think of some military-uniformed guy at a command center on the phone and I still sing the word "line" instead of "one".

Haha. I'm the best.

washington on the one

I thought it was a football reference, like the Washington Huskies are on the 1 yard line.

...or maybe not
