The forum administrator (chris dot waigl at gmail dot com) reserves the right to request users to plausibly demonstrate that they are real people with an interest in the topic of eggcorns. Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

“In the Middle Ages, women were placed on a petal stool.”

This is my first post to this forum; I would be interested in any other instances of this oddly imaginative construction.
