'carbon dated' for 'carbonated'

A fairly common substitution despite its manifest absurdity. Examples:

Okay, so you’re standing in the middle of your living room, chatting with friends and enjoying a lovely, cool, carbondated beverage of your choice.

The worst offender to my numbness was any kind of carbondated beverage (including plain carbondated water). forum/forum1/?cmd=follow&fu=4943&zu=1082

I have an 11 yr. old daughter who does not like carbondated beverages or tea.

i stopped into a Safeway to buy some bottled water (the carbondated kind that
tastes like strawberry-kiwi) ...

I have avoided carbondated soft drinks for a long time.

I drink these alot when I feel like I cant drink another drop of water. ... “non carbondated…excellent for those who have given up soda. Full of flavor.” nutritional+product+detail+Fruit+Water+cqk.html – 85k -
