I was thinking about the lyrics to the song That’s Amore recently. In particular the part that goes, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.” It would seem that if the moon hit your eye the world would be in a state of chaos. We’d have extreme tides, worldwide flooding and end of days taking place. Plus, you’d have a nasty black eye from the moon hitting your face.
P.S. And how can you even compare getting hit in the eye by the moon to being similar to getting hit in the eye with a pizza. One would probably crush you and the other might annoy you or burn you depending on the temperature of the sauce. I think composer Harry Warren and lyricist Jack Brooks were drunk when they wrote this song back in 1952.
