Qoutes, Quotes and the Funniest Misspellings
Qoutes, Quotes and the Funniest Misspellings or how many times have you misspelled something.
So how many times have you misspelled something like qoute. I know I used to do it all of the time before spellcheckers. So here’s my list of the funniest misspellings.
Let’s start with Andrew Jackson, the 7th president. Here’s his quote.
It is a damn poor mind that can think of only one way to spell a word.
I kinda like this one. I spell words different ways all of the time. It’s a shame my teachers you to count off for it.
How about a little Terry Pratchett – author of the Disc Series. Here’s Terry’s Qoutes.
Nanny Ogg knew how to start spelling ‘banana’, but didn’t know how you stopped.”
If you haven’t read any of the books in the Disc Series, I highly recommend them.
Probably the most quoted person in weird categories in Mark Twain. It seems like there is a quote from him about every subject. For this subject about misspellings, he has two quotes.
Anyone who can only think of one way to spell a word obviously lacks imagination.
I don’t see any use in having a uniform and arbitrary way of spelling words. We might as well make all clothes alike and cook all dishes alike. Sameness is tiresome; variety is pleasing.
As always with Twain, both of his quotes get right to the heart of the matter. I also would prefer multiple ways to spell words. It might mean that I’m correct more often.
Common mispellings – misspellings
Want to search for something. The best way is generally to search google. Believe it or not the word goodle is searched for almost 75,000 times per month – goodle.
Although not searched as often, raimbow is searched for about 5,000 times per month. Raimbow, as in “somewhere over the raimbow”. My, my I don’t thing that has the same ring to it as the original Judy Garland song.
As always, thanks again for reading my post on Qoutes, Quotes and the Funniest Misspellings.
