    I like it when people mispell words that are ironic to mispell, like
    intelligent
    education
    fastidious
    meticulous
    misspell

    That sort of thing.

    P.S., yay, I spelled all of those words right on the first try (I have dictionary.com bookmarked)

    P.P.S. oh, and mispellings in thread titles can be funny depending on the topic; for example, "Federa Legislation To Legalize Pot?" I almost fixed that one but was like, "nah, that's too funny" :lol:

    Accommodation
    Liaison
    Manoeuvre (especially you Yanks)
    Labour (see above)
    Foetus (see above)
    Mum (see above) :eek:)

    But the one I see misspelled a lot, and in many different variations, is hypocrisy....

    mischievous
    pastime
    occurred
    separate
    embarrass
    preceding
    indispensable
    definitely
    privilege
    questionnaire

    .... and all of the others from the (above) link. I am a horrible speller, but most of the words I mis-spell look right to me, when I type them, so I just say ... what the heck. Looks good to me. :lol:

    :eusa_shifty: hmmmn .... is it mis-spell or misspell :confused:
