The Spell Chequer.

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
It's rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
It's letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

coastkid said...

We need a Scottish spell check too, regional would be even better!

Alistair said...

Ha!!!

Nicky said...

Oh now that is funny! Thanks for giving me a smile to start my Sunday off, Alistair!

Nicky said...

I'm going to have to share this….

Made me laugh out loud when I found it too!

Twisted Scottish Bastard said...

Oh goodness, we used to use that poem when I worked in Perth High to help the kids understand the strengths and weaknesses of spell checking. I'd mostly forgotten about it, so thanks (I think) for the flashback.

How's the new job going BTW?

Alistair said...

Happy to remind you of happy {?} days....

Not started the job yet as I've been waiting on the police doing background checks to allow me to work with vulnerable groups. I've already been vetted for adults and children but each time you get a new appointment they update it which can take 6 weeks. The new employers are also waiting for my references to be returned { from the outsourced personnel function in India!!!} by my ex-employers. Should start an induction soon after that's all tied up.

Jane said...

Haha! Brilliant. I'm four ever telling my kids knot to rely on spell cheque, butt the temptation is just two much! I'm going to print this out as a grate example for them!

Alistair said...

Fabby comment Jane - I laughed my head off!

Cheers!

Too funny--that's just how my husband and daughter do spelling. My spelling is better--but my poor typing undoes the advantage.

Alistair said...

Hi Yonks,

Glad you liked it. I thought since you were in the area........

Rebecca S. said...

Hahahahahaha! That's brilliant! It reminds me of the work of Shel Silverstein, a well loved, American children's poet.

Alistair said...

Yes, I thought it was great when I saw it too Rebecca. I don't know the work of Silverstein so maybe I should have a look.

Laura said...

Wrong is just perspective. Not that important really - communication is the thing.

Glad you liked it.

Drop by again sometime.
