In her blog post introducing Blog Overflow, the estimable Rebecca Chernoff committed the following, uh, sentence:
Have someone driving the reigns.
After cringing (read: screaming in pain) and posting a comment to gently point out the error (read: ranting and raving), I started having second thoughts. Clearly, Rebecca knows how to write. Clearly, she knows what reign means, and that reins are the agents, not the objects, of driving. So maybe this is a deliberate mistake, something along the lines of "Six degrees of Kevin Bacon" or (somewhat controversially) "Could care less".
Is this/can this be interpreted as a deliberate mashup of "holding the reins" and "driving the car" and "reigning"?
