Somebody got there first

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.
