I've decided to stop throwing every potential eggcorn i see onto this
list, but this one's too wonderful to pass up. From a comment on one of
washingtonpost.com's political blogs, responding to an entry on
Katherine Harris's spectacular continuing flameout in her US Senate race
here in Florida (and no, this person's not a Harris fan):

    YES, next week should be very interesting with what they do to
    Harris. Talk about your soap opera. She is on Life Support
    because her own republican family is plotting to kill her chances
    of being on the ballot. Talk about getting what you deserve. You
    can almost hear her saying "You to Brutus", as the the last knife
    is slipped into her. Kind of brings a tear to your eye !!!
    ( Because you can't stop laughing !)

     house, there is too little; some must be purchased. If there is
     chocolate in the house, there is too much; it must be consumed.
