    Eye halve a spelling checker,
    It came with my pea sea,
    It plainly marks four my revue
    Miss steaks I kin not sea.

    Eye strike a key and type a word,
    And weight four it to 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 checker told me sew.
  2. I've seen that one; it's DEFINITELY worth repeating.

    Funny thing about spell-check; if it doesn't know a word, it will substitute one.
    Our band emails back and forth to get scheduling, and one of the members' spell-check calls one of the other members "Bar-Stool", because it doesn't recognize his real name. (I won't give it out here.)

    Needless to say, he's gotten a lot of ribbing over that one! :D
