Eggcorn and Just Desserts

Thanks to all who wrote in with the suggestion that it should be “just desserts” and not “just deserts” as I had written in “Just Deserts for Mr Dutt.” Actually, it is “just deserts” and “just desserts” is an eggcorn.


  1. Atanu,

    Being one of those who thought it was just desserts, how appropriate it is that the term for it should be eggcorn.

    Enough to keep me amused today.
