Unexpected Fact #195

I found out today that the spell-checker in Microsoft Outlook includes the word "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

I had added an extraneous "l."

How and why did I learn this unexpected fact? I found a use for the word in an e-mail at work. Every once in a while it helps to use absurd language. Even if the sound of it is said to be "quite atrocious."

Hi, Mike!

Spellcheck is always great fun. My favorite quirks are the various ideas mine has for the word "blog," and any corrections offered for people's last names. Place names are fun, too, especially seeing which names are and are not in spell check. Who decided?

I've been lurking around here for a while, and this one just cracked me up so I had to comment. Thanks!

Regards,

Kelly
