Honourable Histoneters.

I shall, no doubt, incur the wrath of the "Thought Police" and the "Histonet
Gestapo", but I think the following little ditty best sums up the hot debate
on "ze Engleesh, as she is spilt"
(I shall now retreat to my bunker and await the verbal barrage)

  "Ode to the Spell Checker!"

  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 key 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
  Its 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 chequer tolled me sew.

M.Kirby. ("Warthog")
