Colour them pink with embarassment...

Maybe they should have called "Mr. Langauge Person"...

bet they have egg on their faeces

Spelling problems? Maybe they could contact that california woman who sues witchcraft to fix computers....

But you have to know English to know the word is misspelled.

I guess they don't like to use Autocowrecked or Speelcheck.

Aren't these the same people who spell it "yog-hurt"? Is there really any help for them?

That's right, Klatu. Speak English or shut up.

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 quay 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 --
It's letter perfect awl the weigh.
My chequer tolled me sew.

(Martha Snow)

It's the U.K.s fault for hiring a Florida spellchecker.

I wouldn't actually put one iota of faith in a spell checker. Not a suasage.

yay wanderer ! you gough!

Obviously our friends across the pond are, once again, in need of our aid. I propose Obama send at least 100 emergency aid editors to help them in their hour of need. Oh, the humanity.

Is the U.K.'s immigrants learning?
