  1. The irony is that Firefox's spell checker doesn't seem to work in this comment box.

  2. Ah, but the Safari spellchecker works just fine.

  3. My favorite example of Word spellchecker's sense of humor: the suggestion that the 28th President of the United States was named "Woodwork" Wilson.

  4. I used to work for a prosecutor, read a lot of police reports. Got one once talking about a neighborhood disturbance (I think somebody got arrested for assault, or possession of weapon, or fighting with the cop, or something which is how it made it to our office).

    Anyway, the report read, in part: "The subjects was yellowing and hollowing at each other."

    A lot of cops are not experts in English...

  5. After surgery, my doctor wrote a note on my paperwork to return immediately if "any dumbness occurs." I sure hope he meant "numbness"...

    Your blog is hilarious--I can't wait to see the next installment.

  6. A translation, for those who are having trouble figuring out the original:

    'So', declared the villian. 'You have followed me to my lair.'
    'Yes,' said the hero. 'Now we shall battle to the death. And it's you who are destined to die!'
    And so the fight began. They fought furiosly, swinging from the chandelier and yelling insults at each other.
    'Die! Die!' yelled the villian.
    'Never!' shouted the hero. 'You are my sworn enemy!'
    As quick as a flash, the hero stabbed him through his chest and won the fight.
    'Hooray!' shouted all the people in the kingdom.

  7. I wrote: "They fought furiosly"

    As you can see, I clearly went to the opposite extreme from this post.

    Oh, and the title, for completeness's sake, translates to "Trust your spell-checker".

  9. This site is hilarious! You've literally made me laugh out loud. I have to admit that I was convinced this post was about strong dialect... I was reading it aloud to myself as if it was in something like Scottish Brogue until I finally went back and puzzled out the title. :)

  11. The "Ladle Rat Rotten Hut" story is clearer if you say it out-loud using a Norwegian accent.

    My students in Minnesota had no problem, but, when I taught in Arizona, they didn't get it : )
