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.

Re: "Parish the thought"

Any thoughts on how that could be construed eggcornishly?

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)

Because of the religious meaning of “parish”,”parish the thought” could mean something like “shame [somebody] for having this thought like the church shames us for having certain kinds of thoughts”.
