Microsoft Works is Laughing at You!

Here is something funny:

When Works 9.0 tries to correct you for typing in the name Sara Palin, the first word that appears is ‘Plain.’ Also shortly further down is ‘Pain’ and just before that ‘Palling,’ as in “Palling around with terrorists.”

The irony is thick.

Also the first suggestion of how to correct the name Katie Courich is ‘Church.’ This sounds like what Sara Palin thought what Katie Courich could do with a little more time in.

Perhaps the makers of word processors are playing games on us and our dependency on our spell-checkers.
