My 3 ½ year old daughter visited Target barefoot, and we told her that was against the store rules. She referred to the potential enforcers as Storetroopers. She has never seen Star Wars, nor been exposed to WW II chronologies, but must have somehow been exposed to ‘Stormtrooper’.

Re: Storetrooper.

I’d keep your eye on that kid. Sounds like she could be a member of the Rebel Alliance.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
