Deal with it.
Revel in it.
I've seen this error--yes, seen in print--frequently enough that a couple of years ago I considered writing about it myself. Here's an example from a New York Times Sunday Magazine story about Kabbalah; three and a half years later, it still hasn't been corrected:"The proceedings grew weirder as they went along, with a lot of football-huddle sort of male bonding interspersed with hora dances, gutteral noises and a talk by one of the chevra that ramblingly connected the weekly Torah portion with some aspect of goodness or spirituality."Link: http://nyti.ms/sbBL6i
But of course "gutteral noises" is just a (very common) spelling mistake, not a blend error or malapropism like Monica's example.
