Spell Check - Love it or Hate it??

More word fun.

I've long battled with spell check. It has invaded countless emails, files, and text messages. As much as we appreciate it catching our errors, we curse it for “fixing” words that didn’t need fixing.

I see it on the TV in those scrolling banners the news station use - misspelled words that make me gnash my teeth. So when I came across this, I knew I had to share it with you.

ODE TO MY SPELL CHECKER

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It cam with my pea sea

It plainly marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid

It nose bee fore two long

And eye can put the error rite

Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it

I am shore your pleased two no

Its letter perfect awl the weigh

My chequer tolled me sew!

I try to tell people I have dyslexic fingers, but this adds a new depth to it. :)
