Collected ‘in the wild’ by a friend last night. The speaker was talking about an unusual partiality for a particular item of confectionery, ”...it’s a faddish.” “A what?” “You know, she’s got a food faddish.” I’m not sure about this one either, it seems to have been captured in mid-stride on its way to somewhere else but that foot has not quite landed. Hard to search for too but a timid tap on the keys did yield this:Ginsberg writes about them, Roscoe seemingly has a faddish with the hindparts and Lime makes casual referrences and he sports an avatar of well-known homo …

Among the 27,000 ghits for ‘a faddish’ there may be more, but I can’t be asked (sic) and anyway, how many examples are required for validation? And furthermore, has there been established any mathematical relationship between a Googlehit and an obviously unverifiable personal experience of spontaneous usage by a real person? How many ‘wilds’ should = 1 ghit?
Peter – This web site is mysterious. I have faith that all will be revealed, eventually. jorkel knows more than I know, but he cannot answer every question. (You may want to look at the discussion under my yesterday post about not being Swarthy.)
A person named Pat sometimes visits. Pat seems to know a great deal. Pat probably can answer many of our questions. For now, I am trying to read all the remote corners of the web site.

Tom, It is good to know that I am not alone, and be assured that I am much not swarthier than your good self. Pat’s immanence is clear, though I have not the foggiest of notions how, and though the sight is failing your faint footsteps, and those of the Great Jorkel of course, may yet lead me into the light.

A fattish for vegetable oil makes sense. Kind of. Not all fattishes people confess to are food fattishes. Can you have a fattish for dieting?

Perhaps an argument for eggcornicity could be made if some of these examples were about food/eating, but the only such examples I found seemed to be puns.
