“Pokeadot” looks promising. Each little dot is a poke. Lots of web examples. High marks. (One wonders, by the way, what the connection is between the dance and the pattern. The OED points out that “polka” gave its name, at the time “polkadot” began to be used, to a number of pop culture items, so the link may not be to the physical design.)
“Oddtopsee” is attractive. But almost nonexistent on the web.
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
Oddtopsee could be a heroic attempt to understand the word autopsy – or not. But why have odd and see in there if you weren’t trying to make sense of the word.
Here’s another act of semantic heroism that I’ve never submitted—all topsy. When your organs get all topsy turvy.
Also on the results of his all-topsy it stated that there was a bandage on his nose. During an all-topsy everything such as jewelry and clothing must be removed. So if the bandage was on his nose it was never supposed to be their. Also on his all-topsy results and his will there was an error. MJ’s name is Michael Joe Jackson. That is his full name. It is even written that way on his license and birth certificate. But, on his will and all-topsy results it is written as Michael Joseph Jackson. Those are two very official documents and must be written 100% correct.”
Why didn’t the state have this thing alltopsied? Maybe it’s a alien or maybe it was some kind of messenger. They should release more photos. Don’t look like no coon to me. Either way, it should be in a museum all taxidermied up.
New ones I think are grade A: Housepatality, blank of an eye, rush and roulette, mopehead, ordergraph, conjungle visit, mediocracy, generals toast and toss. And the winner is : wound for womb. Come on, that one is both wrong and right in so many ways that I’m just embarrassed to point it out. It’s scissarian.
Also ovoid: limp notes, cycle-cell, Altar Eagle, worth wild ... maybe, disc race … maybe, for nominal … maybe, price list … maybe
Mondegreens: limp notes, 80HD, pin knuckle, worth wild ... maybe, disc race … maybe, for nominal … maybe, elements, price list … maybe

Some spotty documentation.
OP: So let’s see what do you have to offer him…Other than conjungle visits! ... So, other than maybe conjungle visits,,,what have you done for him?
A. Check out Conjungle Visits, a titillating addition to the Discovery Channel’s primate primetime lineup.
A. Conjungle visits…maybe he’s got a Tarzan/Jane fantasy
A. But “conjungle” makes sense Leigh. Those visits are to cons who are in a jungle of sorts.

blank of an eye. I only looked for blank back tears, and found 6 hits, all using blank as the past tense of blink. Stink/stank, blink/blank.
I blank back tears and forced a smile on my face repeating, “I’ll be okay” over and over again
Oops. Just noticed poke-a-dot, with dashes, is in the Database: http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/english/488/poke-a-dot/
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
For the first time in her whole life, five second was felt forever. Then she would wish she lost her hearing sense when Kyuhyun closed his eyes for a while before he said. “Let’s end this..” The pain that he felt wasn’t unseen but it could be felt. ...“You.. you wont let me go, will you?” her question filled by scar. Kyuhyun closed his eyes. He could feel a hundred metals fell in his shoulder. Victoria blanked her eyes, and suddenly she felt she was near to cry. “Err.. I don’t love the girl who cry in front of me, actually,” Kyuhyun smirked then touched her cheeks with his own finger. “But for you, it is an exception.” Victoria let her mind flied at back then…
Victoria step her feet out from his car and didn’t look back at him. She touched her left chest. She felt something hit that part for more than once and had made it bleeding. But in the end she couldn’t find the scar. They –Kyuhyun and Victoria didn’t move. Victoria was still busy to find her bleeding heart while Kyuhyun closed his eyes.
