Just came across this:
“Last week, more than 90,000 Jews cramped into a New Jersey football stadium …”
http://www.timesofisrael.com/never-mind … teinsaltz/
A Google search turned up more similar references than I expected. For example,
“People being Cramped into a train in China” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LbPGbPaMLI
“In word 2007, I want to view and edit the footnote separator, but in Draft View the whole text of the document is cramped into the left hand…”

I kind of like the idea of pain elided with the image of extreme lack of space.
Is this an eggcorn?
