Registrations were closed for a long time because of forum spam, but I have re-opened them on a trial basis.

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.

crotch << craw

Time to catch up on eggcorn activity around the web. I’ll put these notices in separate threads in case you have comments.

First is a note on a web journal about the “the best eggcorn I’ve overheard.” It is “sticks in my crotch” for “sticks in my craw.” Apparently confuses a bird metaphor with either hockey or a wedgie.

The web has a few examples of this substitution. Some may be deliberate perversions.
