One of my adult literacy learners today spelled that The Badger State
as "Westconsin."  I thought it was a possible eggcorn, and in her case
I think it was, but I got 175k raw ghits on it, most of which referred
to businesses in western Wisconsin where it seems to be a conscious
blend to name the region.
