More Adam and Joe's eggcorns

I stumbled across another short Adam and Joe clip on eggcorns, contributed by their listeners way back in January ‘09. It’s here on the UK grammarblog. Here’re some examples from the wild for the final one, “buns and burner” for Bunsen burner. Well, maybe not a great eggcorn in the absence of a logical new image, but pretty funny nonetheless.

I then realised why every one was screaming there was a fire in our classroom. someone had knocked over a buns and burner and the whole room burst into flames. All the chemicals were going “pop bang boom” exploding. The sealing started to melt and fall on top of us

Now that they were back at his labs, Severus fired up the buns and burner and retrieved a few beakers from his cupboards.
