I know I've blogged about this before, but some jokes are worth repeating. Arete reminds us of the wonders of spell check, which gives us perfectly spelled, completely inappropriate words in the midst of texts. Or at least it does if one does not pay attention to the suggested "correct" spellings. Some favorites:
1. Baroque. As in, "At the family picnic, we ate baroque ribs."
2. Incontinence. As in, "I'm sorry I missed my conference. I hope it didn't cause you any incontinence."
3. Spandex. As in, "I'm sorry I haven't been doing my work for the online class. I was hospitalized for an urgent spandex removal."
That last did indeed cause some incontinence. Bonus points for anyone who can figure out what procedure the student underwent.
