Re: More eggcorns from Twitter

Some of these smell a bit like eggcorns. Oodles of hits for please reframe from. We have already noted it on the forum, however. Here.

“Pokeadot” looks promising. Each little dot is a poke. Lots of web examples. High marks. (One wonders, by the way, what the connection is between the dance and the pattern. The OED points out that “polka” gave its name, at the time “polkadot” began to be used, to a number of pop culture items, so the link may not be to the physical design.)

“Oddtopsee” is attractive. But almost nonexistent on the web.

Re: More eggcorns from Twitter

Oddtopsee could be a heroic attempt to understand the word autopsy – or not. But why have odd and see in there if you weren’t trying to make sense of the word.

Here’s another act of semantic heroism that I’ve never submitted—all topsy. When your organs get all topsy turvy.

Also on the results of his all-topsy it stated that there was a bandage on his nose. During an all-topsy everything such as jewelry and clothing must be removed. So if the bandage was on his nose it was never supposed to be their. Also on his all-topsy results and his will there was an error. MJ’s name is Michael Joe Jackson. That is his full name. It is even written that way on his license and birth certificate. But, on his will and all-topsy results it is written as Michael Joseph Jackson. Those are two very official documents and must be written 100% correct.”

My XH says ‘hypnocrit’ for hypocrite. And ‘Alltopsy’ for Autopsy.
Fractured language thread

Why didn’t the state have this thing alltopsied? Maybe it’s a alien or maybe it was some kind of messenger. They should release more photos. Don’t look like no coon to me. Either way, it should be in a museum all taxidermied up.
Hairless raccoon shot

New ones I think are grade A: Housepatality, blank of an eye, rush and roulette, mopehead, ordergraph, conjungle visit, mediocracy, generals toast and toss. And the winner is : wound for womb. Come on, that one is both wrong and right in so many ways that I’m just embarrassed to point it out. It’s scissarian.

Also ovoid: limp notes, cycle-cell, Altar Eagle, worth wild ... maybe, disc race … maybe, for nominal … maybe, price list … maybe

Mondegreens: limp notes, 80HD, pin knuckle, worth wild ... maybe, disc race … maybe, for nominal … maybe, elements, price list … maybe

Looks like cycle cell is a pre-existing condition on the Eggcorn Forum.

Re: More eggcorns from Twitter

Oops. We’ve also seen limp edema. And both alter eagle and altar ego, if memory serves.

Some spotty documentation.

conjungle visit

OP: So let’s see what do you have to offer him…Other than conjungle visits! ... So, other than maybe conjungle visits,,,what have you done for him?
A. Check out Conjungle Visits, a titillating addition to the Discovery Channel’s primate primetime lineup.
A. Conjungle visits…maybe he’s got a Tarzan/Jane fantasy
A. But “conjungle” makes sense Leigh. Those visits are to cons who are in a jungle of sorts.

ever dentally ... this must be a mondegreen, but it’s an interesting change of imagery.

a dog walks into a bar….it sees the horse and starts barking which ever dentally startles and confuses the horse … and-chairs

ever dentally you didn’t hear what Harry Ried said the Senate will not work with the Republican president. STUPID … en-US&pg=5

blank of an eye. I only looked for blank back tears, and found 6 hits, all using blank as the past tense of blink. Stink/stank, blink/blank.

I blank back tears and forced a smile on my face repeating, “I’ll be okay” over and over again
