Good Reddens

The semantics escape me but this is a popular one:

Good reddens this criminal is arrested, let’s hope they all follow!

Say goodbye and good reddens to wasting gasoline or petrol.

Good reddens. She was an over paid slug. Nobody liked her

Good Bye and Good reddens. I just hope you fold up and go away sooner than later.

Any ideas? “Good blushes” ?

Even more inexplicable:

Good radiance, jail the classless trash.

Well if he does, good radiance!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. GOOD RADIANCE TO BAD RUBBISH

Good radiance to Mother Russia

Re: Good Reddens

Excellent, both of them, though I’m especially fond of the second. However, what attracts me about them is precisely their nonsensicalness (or not-quite-sensicalness), which detracts from full eggcornhood. Still …

Re: Good Reddens

Agreed, all are wonderfully obscure. Good radiance! Good writtens could be contorted into something logical, I think. Here’s a litigious one.

Gossip blog
The guy did something wrong & shouldn’t be allowed around children if that is what HE thinks is an ok way to act. Good writtance he’s gone!

Law blog
Good writtance…let’s hope more like you leave the bench. Stop playing games with our Constitution!!!

Investment blog
So, you won’t get another penny from me or anybody else because as you know word travels lightning fast in this Internet age. So, GOOD WRITTANCE!

Re: Good Reddens

My mother, from northern Ohio, used to say “get red of …” and “to red up the dishes”, so “good reddance” would sound right to her.

Re: Good Reddens

Yikes, I went to all the trouble of writing this up before checking in the catacombs. Bad strategy. I can’t bear to throw these further examples away, so here they are, along with the slightly tortured justification. And the acorn, riddance.

Good writtens. You’ve been written out of the scene. Goodbye, that’s all she wrote. Good writtens might be a reference to the closing of a chapter. It might come most naturally in those dialects (that I seem to hear more and more frequently) where d is pronounced as I would a t. There appear to be more than a hundred hits.

Our old friend, Parker has left our team:( but good writtens to him
