Re: Alzheimer's Disease not Old Timers Disease

This is already in the Database, though it needs to be said that that particular article is too minimal to be of much use. Here’s the page: http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/english/337/old-timers/
The comments are actually more interesting than the article itself.

I’ve always been suspicious of this one. Like a number of the people who added comments to that article, I’ve heard this used as an intentional pun, but never eggcornishly. Still, quite a number of people maintain very fervently that it exists in the wild as a genuine eggcorn.
