Southern cuisine

An Australian publisher has had to pulp and reprint a cook-book after one recipe listed "salt and freshly ground black people" instead of black pepper. Anyone know where you can get a people grinder? My wood chipper is way too noisey for dining.

I hardly think that Edward Gibbon had to resort to using a spell checker. Michigan does strange things to one's intellect, it appears.

The point remains that, outside of the former states of the Confeebulary, most Amerikans do not know how to freshly grind black people.

Where are all the yuku racist idiots when you need them?

That's the trouble with spell checker -- if the word is spelled right you won't see the error no matter how unfortunate.

In business I used to email people and end with "Best regards" as its more internationally accepted as practice than "Sincerely yours".

After typing each I always spell checked it before sending.  At times, I'd fat-finger the T rather than G in "regards" and it wold pass spell check as "Best retards".

The first time that I was notified of this was when one of my business contacts replied with "Best retards to you as well."  It was the last time I relied on spellchecker.

Maybe i should've used "Goodnight and Goodluck".
