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.

Shoe-in

In a comment to a post about Ashley Judd on Slate March 11 2013:

“With the Tea Party, no Republican is a shoe-in anymore.”

There were a few replies to the comment, none of them taking exception to the formulation—a search here doesn’t turn it up. Do I get a medal?
