Deliberate eggcorns.

Hey, I got linked by Language Log! I wish I could produce what has been identified as a variation on an eggcorn to celebrate the occasion.

IN THE COMMENTS: XWL fulfilled my wish:
Congratulations, you got Lincoln Logged!

(an eggcorn for "linked on log")

(it's a stretch, but I used to like those things)

If an eggcorn is what it is, is Leno's APORN joke far off?

If you look out the cabin window on the left, you'll see we're flying over the Specific Ocean.

"Put your guards up" makes me think of someone setting up little army guys on some Lego castle.

But I love "escape goat."
