Sorry, what's a "clanger"?

There we go... (Memo to self: Add that word to the dictionary of words
Daniels doesn't understand)

A clanger is a mistake.

Usually when dropped. You can pull fast ones, wool over the eyes, birds, crackers and so on, but how do you "pull" a mistake?

It is also an children's animated character from the 1970's, which purports
to live on the moon with the Soup dragon.

What do you mean, "purports"?
