bottles for boggles

“It bottles the mind” or “the mind bottles”

some limited hits out there,
https://twitter.com/GemMint_10/status/6 … 5751332864

I saw it a couple of days ago in a gaming forum* and it made me laugh.
I wondered if there was enough sense in it for it to be a true eggcorn.

*in a thread about “lemon trains” rather than “lemming trains” (where online players just follow each other to their doom rather than play tactically), but probably a bit too niche usage to be make the database.

Re: bottles for boggles

Many, many examples on the web.

I can see a few semantic threads connecting a boggled and a bottled mind.

Depiction found on the web:

Re: bottles for boggles

Check out an earlier post, mockney_piers, that will further bobble your mind. kem put them in a list:

Mind bugling
Mind-bulging
Mind-buckling
Mind-blogging
Mind-bungling
Mind-burgling
Mind-bobbling
Mind-bugging
Mind-bogging
Mind-gobbling
Mind-bubbling
Eye-boggling

Let’s see, that list looks unfinished …

If it is a food item, it should look appetizing and mouthwatering, if it is a beverage, it should be lip-smacking, and if there is some other daily routine items packaging it should be eye bobbling.

Re: bottles for boggles

Right here is an interesting discussion of another variation, mind-buggering—in which, appropriately, the Eggcorn Forum is mentioned.

And here’s yet another variation:

Zap wowie special fx, mind boogering spaceship—no wimpy saucer,
nerd talk

Pretty …. mind boogering.
discussion

Miss all your mind boogering guidance and input.
gun forum

next episode: Sandra Fluke meets boo-boo to discuss contraception while still living with your parents in the out barn and Kim K talks breast enhancement on ‘tits for tots’….mind boogering!!!!!
satire

Mind-Boogering, Of Course, that, appearantly, Di’s bad taste in music did not include Huey and his NewsCrewis…
