OK Mad Gabs, or Mondegreens, are basically "misheard" words. A series of words or a phrase that seems to be nonsense till you sound it out and it becomes a real word or phrase.

For example: "These If Hill Wore" when pronounced quickly becomes "The Civil War."
and "Eye Mull of Mush Sheen" quickly spoken becomes "I'm A Love Machine."

So the game is to post the nonsense phrase and others try to guess what the "real" word or phrase is. Once the correct answer is given, the winner then posts the next mondegreen and it continues.


I will go first. It is one word.

"I poke at lips"

Figured it would be a waste to be the third that said Hallelujah so I went for the outside chance
