From a description of a graphic novel on sale at Top Shelf’s website:
Chronicling the lives of a cast of repulsive characters living in the fallout of glutinous over consumption, greedy global capitalism, and excessive genetic tinkering, this debut is not to be missed.
I’m assuming it’s just an amusing misspelling rather than an eggcorn, since, even though it conjures an image, I doubt anyone’s actually confusing the meanings of “glutinous” and “gluttonous”.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:
I really need help finding places near me and when I travel that can accommodate my gluteus free vegan diet.
Q: Are there glutton-free, diet or diabetic cheesecakes?
A: Glutton-free cheesecakes are available on order.
Damn, I could sure use some of those glutton-free cheesecakes. Yum! I’d eat a dozen of ‘em, guilt-free!
The way things are going, gluten has gone past a dietary intolerance and is fast becoming a moral issue. I think the conflation of gluten with one of the deadly sins is all too near.
