    Okay, Im in the car and a song comes on by Macklebee or somesuch name.
    It's a rap/singing tune. Anyway, the chorus/hook is:

    "So we put our hands up - like the ceiling cat told us.....
    like the ceiling cat told us."

    WTF? Have hard times fallen on our beloved Ceiling Cat? I can haz minimum 10 year sentence?

    I'm sure my old ass is not hearing the song correctly.
    I hear something different every time I hear The Smashing Pumpkins "1979". It's like an abstract painting - different things to different people.

    BTW early Pearl Jam interpretations keep me entertained and intrigued as well.

    And you did hear it wrong.

    "like the ceiling can't hold us"

    Hate to ruin the moment but there it is.
