The Boy Formerly Known as Hudson
This is the boy formerly known as Hudson. Yesterday he announced a name change.
“What is it now?” Lucas asked him.
“Mr. Swinger of the Dingers,” he answered.
After our hysterical laughter died down, we asked where he came up with that name. Turns out it’s based on the lyrics to The Jungle Book’s “I Wanna Be Like You:”
“I’m the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P.
I’ve reached the top and had to stop
And that’s what’s bothering me.”
Madison was the queen of misheard song lyrics. She still sings “I’m blue da ba dee da ba die” as “I’m blue if I was green I would die.”
Then again, Lucas thought they were singing “the smartest trooper” in the chorus of “I Know This Much is True.” I thought Boy George sang “you’re my lover not my Bible” instead of rival.
I guess it runs in the family.
