Well, I'm not convinced we should be putting all our finds in the
eggcorn basket.

(There's actually quite a bit of variation about what should modify
"basket" in this idiom: <>. Were you
thinking of "wrong" instead of "one"? I was more familiar with "same",
which wouldn't give rise to an eggcorn in any case.)

who is a bit taken aback by the recent submissions on the forum part
of the Eggcorn Database, which look just a little off, un-eggcornish.
