Proz.com eggcorn? Feb 16, 2009

The eggcorn "prose.com" for "proz.com" takes you to the website of a software company called "Ensemble".

What can I say..... Feb 16, 2009

except......

"Know that the Lord is God indeed; Without our aid he did us make:
We are his folk, he doth us feed, And for his sheep he doth a steak....."

As heard by many a schoolchild.
