Flaminyon, flaming yon, flay mignon for filet mignon

This one I cannot claim to have been deranged enough to be able to imagine myself. It was reported in the form of flaminyon on a social forum. There are lots of interesting mutations on that site that I am slowly working my way through to document for this forum. Don’t miss hit number four.

The justification would be something to do with barbequing (great word) and the attendant conflagrations.

I have taste for flaminyon, but I only have a burger budget.

A friend of mine wrote to me telling me of a fancy wedding she had been to. She said they spared no expense and had “flaming yon” at the wedding banquet. … d=83423396

I had my first flaming-yon in Chicago on Sullivan st.

Flaming simblings include a flavoring of onion in flamonion, a cute roasting in flame mignon, and a flay mignon, a cute and tender skinning.

Calling Japanese Riceballs as Donuts is about as sensible as calling a potato chip a flame mignon steak.

We ate flay mignon, rolls, condiments (they were listed in the menu), chicken, cotton candy, popcorn, desserts (jars of candy), and so much more.

Flaming yon. What a hoot. Classic.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.

Re: Flaminyon, flaming yon, flay mignon for filet mignon

We were about a year behind the curb on this one. The twitterverse was aflutter about flaming young at the beginning of 2011. The tumblr Egg Corns blog twigged me to this.
