Check Yo’ Spell Check

Filed under: Non Sequiters for $500 Alex — qualifiedcondition @ 12:08 am

Dear Mr. Gates,

I need you to understand that I don’t know how to spell “hors d’ ouevres.”  When I type “horsdevers” or “orderves” or “fancy snacks” I really need you to just do the math.  You figure out every other word that I butcher and you’ve actually helped me unlock the mystery of “receptacle” and “archaeological.”  Is a jacked up French word that’s cut into three parts and bifurcated by an apostrophe so hard?  I’d Google it instead, but I just can’t bear those condescending italics.  “Ahem, don’t you mean hors d’ ouevresdumbass?” Please get on it.

Sincerely yours,

  1. Oh no! I just copy and paste the spelling that you choose, because you strike me as the type who keeps the spelling of these pretentious words in your back pocket, just to keep pretentious people in check (a vigilante of sorts). I guess I need to start dictionary.com-ing the spelling myself.
