"Widdle Away" for "Whittle Away" plus others all from one source!

Here are a few excerpts from one single post on slashdot.org – a regular “corny cope ya.”
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=181794&cid=15035329

“We’re widdling away at our country because we can.” – widdling
“Our people like to tinker and blaim, so they keep chopping away at the country, for it is to blaim for all our problems.” – blaim
“Just as long as they show up and weed wack our lawns.” – wack for whack

and in another of his posts:

“bannish”

Of course, maybe these aren’t strictly eggcorns, just bad spelling… but a search through his other posts could be entertaining.

(For those who are sensitive, warning – there is PROFANITY in his posts.)
