    Incidentally, should you wish to avoid the sad fate of this poor poet, go read Jack M. Lyon’s instructions on how to create an exclude dictionary for MS Word’s spell checker, and then his later post which gives examples of word lists to exclude.

  2. That’s too funny for words. That’s a brilliant find, India. Thank you for sharing.

  3. India, that’s priceless. And, Steve, thanks for the heads up. I was just sitting here thinking I really ought to post something on my blog tonight, and now I know what to post ;-)

    Glad youse like it. But, really, I don’t think of things I see on Making Light as finds. I mean, it’s kind of like linking to a thing I see on BoingBoing: I assume everyone and his or her mother has already seen it, but sometimes I still can’t resist.

    Because doesn’t everyone read Making Light? If not, I ask, in my best Hütz impersonation, what is wrong with you?
