Adventures with Spell Cheque*

I love the spell check tool on my mail programme
Not only does it easily highlight those clumsy little typos but it provides some of the funniest moments in my day.

Usually in the rush to send out a newsletter I skim past the alternative suggestion but when Croser was replaced by CARESSER [wonder what Brian would think of that?] in the recent fizz newsletter I was prompted to record the rest of its suggestions:

CLICQUOT became COLLOQUIQUIA [I kid you not]
HEIDSIECK was replaced by HADES
and for some very strange reason it wanted to replace WINERY with WEANERS

* a message to all copy writers on ABC and SMH websites - spell check won't fix their/there or its/it's. Let's all be careful.
