Don't Always Trust the Squiggle Under the Word

The Spell Chequer

Owed Two A Spell Chequer

Eye halve a spelling chequer,
it came 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
it's 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.

Hilarious! Though I'm afraid if I show it to my kids they'll wonder what's wrong with it.

So true, so true. It's even funnier when you think of me writing with pen in hand and can't remember how to spell a word. I seriously think for a split second that a little red squiggly will appear under the word. Sheesh, what is the world coming to?

LOVE this. I've seen it lots, of course, but it's still hilariously funny. Can something be hilariously funny? I suppose it can...
