It might be interesting to record when we went looking for an eggcorn only to find that it had already been bagged.
Today I thought of “holidays sauce” for “hollandaise sauce” and “asian orange” for “agent orange”.
I dreamt up “a croc of shit” today. Been beaten to it though.

This happens to me all the time—I posted on “newmonic” just today, though I was pretty sure someone had beaten me to it even before I logged on.
I’ve just looked up acidulous/assiduous and found that it’s already been posted. To kampong my frustration, it seems I posted it myself.
