Malapropisms

Not wanting to cast nasturtiums, but some of you peeps really need to tow the line with your spelling and grandma. It doesn't auger well. However, I can send you to a place that can help.

The Eggcorns Database has a full list of malapropisms -- in lame man's terms 'eggcorns' -- that can help you avoid those embarrassing trite and true verbal slips. Alimentary errors. You could really go at it hammer and thongs if you wanted to.

Good luck.
