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.

flower names

My landlady grew lovely roses and the streaked red-orange-yellow-pink ones (called Joseph’s Coat) in her yard became St. Joseph’s Goat.
The Saint part I could kind of get—but what could the Goat possibly mean to her? Never asked, and now she’s gone.
