'next egg' for 'nest egg'

‘Next’ is eggcornish, since a nest egg is money put aside for future use. Several thousand ghits:

What’s new at Desjardins Financial Security? ... it must be part of the retirement plan so the investor is aware of the impact on that next egg.”

ONE GOAL: Provide superior financial advice to attorneys. ... And in 20 years,
the next egg will grow to $1016409. Bingo!

...make the right decisions as retirement approaches to turn your next egg into
income … so you don’t spend your golden years worrying about financial security. ... things—a divorce, an illness, a job loss, a company failing—and that fragile next egg is gone. will_you_still_hire_me_when_im_64
