Quandary Resolution 713
Annie Oakley, contemptuously, raj, mondegreen
"Aw, if yer lucky, the best y'll git is a Annie Oakley", said young Billy to his little brother Jack, referring contemptuously to Mr. Pratt's habit of paying for a week's work cleaning up after the elephants (MIGHTY SYMBOLS OF THE RAJ! mighty symbols of poop, more like) with a free ticket to the sideshows, but he couldn't dampen the spirits of Jack, who sang loudly and happily all the way home his own mondegreenish version of Britney Spears' song "Circus" (in which the line "All eyes on me, in the middle of the ring, just like the circus" became "A lice on me! I'm a cinnamon ring! I like the circus!"), followed by his favorite patriotic hymn "O beautiful for spaceship guys!"
