Spell Check Fun

My Eudora spell check wishes to change "colonoscopies" to "cornucopias."

I love technology sometimes, don't you?

PS: Firefox's spell check doesn't recognize the first word at all.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

I used to work in the Bureau of Data Management and Strategy, abbreviated BDMS. Word Perfect's spell check would always suggest bums. Knowing some of the other components and people in that Bureau, I couldn't have made a more appropriate suggestion. When I was first reorganized into that group I never went to the office picnics because I didn't know half the people and didn't want to know the other half. Then later I realized that for 15 or 20 bucks I could get the afternoon off with beer, hamburgers, beer, hot dogs, beer, fried chicken, beer, potato salad and cole slaw, beer, desserts, beer, beer, beer, ... . It suddenly looked like a good thing!
