My friend Casey’s mom found this at a flea market!

Oregon for sale

I will admit that I sat here for a second trying to figure out what in the picture was from or related to Oregon. Then I had a *facepalm* moment.

Eggcorn… in French!

I’m including this one without hesitation because the correct expression is so well-known in English.

The correct expression is “déjà vu,” which means “already seen.”  “Vous,” however, is also a French word — the formal “you” — and so Q is right that this qualifies as an eggcorn.  I’m not sure what “already you” would mean.  And since there ought to be two pretty accent marks on “déjà,” I’m calling this one on spelling as well.
