Re: "bonfire" and "bombfire"

Maybe here or in a couple of other places on this site. Of course it exists in many other places other than our site, and most probably it is such a place you are referring to.
When you want to post something here, go to the Eggcorn Database page first and search for something apropos (e.g. in this case for “bombfire” and “bomb fire”) in the second search window (the Google search) on that page. That way you can add your observation to the already reported ones. We already have far too many multiple observations of the same eggcorn candidates in separate posts.
It’s also worth looking of the Internet generally to document whatever you have seen or heard. It is surprisingly rare that you will fail to do so.
Anyhow, welcome to the forum; enjoy your times here!
