Agoraphile sent me the following link:

"Senath Council Tables Viscous Dog Ordinance"--headline, Daily Dunklin Democrat (Kennett, Mo.), Jan. 9


I sent them a reply, telling them that this looked like one of the examples of the evils of spell checkers that arouse such a visceral reaction in me.

I asked them is if a viscous dog was one that was slow as molasses in January, or one that refused to go with the flow.

I then proceded to give them a few words about vicious dogs. :wink:

A canine that had been tarred, but not yet feathered, would be pretty viscous. If it was ridden out of town on a rail, it would come bacK vicious.

I saw this in a resume written by construction superintendent, under "experience":

1,300,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and where house facility.

Yeah, at least he didn't list it as "wear hose" -- that could lead to roads down which we have no need to go ...

A stuporvisor where I work raved today about the fine, high quality "mandolin" oranges they had...
I asked if that wasn't awfuly high in fiber. They said no more than regular oranges.
Sigh... :(

The wife got a Mandolin from her daughter for Christmas, it doesn't play music either, but it really is a Mandolin, not a Mandarin.

Today I read that some behaviours exculate problems.

tap-tap-tap... Hmmm, I see on The Google:
-415 others have already added exculate to their vocabularies;
-108 exculates;
-187 are exculating;
-396 have already exculated;
-only one has experienced exculation; and
-one hyped-up exculative.

Well then take the exculator up to three....

Skinné, my sympathies on your failure to squeeze a knowing smile out of that stuporvisor. Don't fret, tonight a menu offered me a salad that included "sliced chicken beasts" but I knew picking on it would fall flat. I thought it redundant but ordered it hold-the-comment and simmered in slicelence. :?
Stop! Murder us not, tonsured rumpots! Knife no one, fink!
