Brand new eggcorn never heard before (at least not by me)

This evening on Radio National's Australia Talks (and I wonder if that's next for the axe): 'We're not going to pamper to them ...'

(She meant pander.)

And speaking of pandas (see what I did there?), a bonus beautiful phrase: charismatic megafauna.

I read "air on the side of" this morning instead of "err".

Oh goodness, eggcorns are everywhere. Today I read "chock one up" for "chalk one up", and no, it didn't make any sense her way.
