first-year wordplay

A first-year writing student handed in a paper that consistently misspelled "Sontag" as "Santog."

I picture "Santog" as a cross between Santa and a Balrog: a giant red slobbery troll-like monster that shoots flame and hurls presents at you.

My housemate thought of "Sandhog," a desert-dwelling rodent.

Any other thoughts? Or other writing mishaps?

Wow. I kind of want to dream about the Santog now.
