Ode to a spell chequer

Many thanks to my good friend Lynn Tulip for sharing this brilliant poem with us… enjoy!


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 rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it,

I am shore your pleased two no,

Its letter perfect in it’s weigh,

My chequer tolled me sew.

  1. Love it 🙂

  2. I have seen this lots of times and still think it’s brilliant.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks, Sarah and Angelika … I think it’s hilarious but it does make a very serious point which is, do not automatically trust your spell checker! As I’ve said before the English language is far too insane for any logical machine or piece of software to understand. The human eye is the only truly valid spell checker and proof reader, I’m afraid…
