Re: More Friday Fun: Archie Bunker-style mangled expressions
I found a site that lists several phrases that are typically distorted
because people are used to hearing them rather than seeing them in
print. There are some amusing ones.
Anyone have any other good ones that aren't mentioned on the site?
These are often also called "eggcorns" and you can
find an extensive database of them at
