Easter egg letgomenonces

Carrying on the tradition* of April 1 being “bring out your googlenonces and choice malaprops that would never be acceptable on any other day of the year”, I give you:

Star Trek fanfic
Meanwhile, John was walked off the Bridge. “Typical John. Walking of the Bridge unannounced…...Lieutenant Enden, I apologize for Lieutenant West…He’s somewhat ineggmatic...”
“No problem, I’m used ineggmatic people” Said Erik

Movie review
While it is possible there are some shadowy family businesses our there dominated by a “Godfather” Mafioso who commands with the member of the family to do his beating.

Military law forum
now i live in wv where pot is decreamilized and under 15 grams is a mistermeaner a fine. can they do this to me .

With that said, every part of your body needs to be in a chemical “balance”. You might have heard the term electrolights. These little bugger are important.

Sports forum
Every week we hear the commontator moan and moan about the refs decision, or the players dive… They make mountains out of mole holes sometimes… The commontators are suppose to commontate and not give there opinion.

I once had a rasta man tell me that his soul was like a ham hawk in his granola

* A very short and ineggmatic tradition that starts (and maybe ends) here.

Acorns for search engine: enigmatic, bidding, decriminalized, electrolytes, commentator, hock. Electrolights is quite common actually.

Dignity is the wee space between what we mean and what we say.

Re: Easter egg letgomenonces

Hey, there’s dignity in eggcorns too. Ditto malaprops … how about “bonaprops” or “propaprops” to remove the stingma.

David, I found your allsome post. Didn’t find the allsome pallsome you were looking for, but there was an Allsome Possum !! somewhat low on the Bulgarian Doom Kills per minute rankings a few months back.
