Not just for urban legends any more. In The Red and the Mondegreen, Snopes provides us the real lyrics for various Christmas carols. Namely, not:

Good King Wences’ car backed out

On the feet of heathens


Of course, since a lot of these carols are pretty old, most of us no longer understand their cultural references. Like does anyone know what the Feast of Stephen is? Tune into your favorite Fox news program tonight, and I’m sure someone will blame this ignorance on the Liberals What Ate X-Mas! Or, perhaps, on year-old clips from the Daily Show.
