I wrote about eggcorns a few days ago, and in one of those coincidences that make you think “huh?”, spotted one in the wild this morning. From a customer review of a true crime movie on Amazon: “If you think the film is gut retching, I dare you to actually review the case.” Gut retching! A perfect specimen!
I went straight to the Eggcorn Database to see if it’s been previously reported, and it hasn’t. I found a new one! God, this must be what Howard Carter felt like when he discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb.
