Candidate for a Pullet Surprise
Date posted: April 7, 2017
Here’s a little Friday fun for National Poetry Month.
Have you ever had a spell checker ‘correct’ your spelling in a way that didn’t make sense? Homonyms can lead to confusing (and sometimes funny) results.
Here’s the beginning of Candidate for a Pullet Surprise, a poem by Jerrold Zar illustrating the pitfalls of using a spellchecker.
I have a spelling checker,
It came with my PC.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot sea.
Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your sure reel glad two no.
Its vary polished in it’s weigh.
My checker tolled me sew.
