Spelling Checker Humor

Some years ago I worked for Unisys and the spelling checker in Microsoft Word could not recognize the name of the company. Every time I spell checked a document with the word "Unisys" in it my computer would helpfully suggest "Anuses" as a replacement -- which struck me as so funny that I never added the word to my personal dictionary.

Blogger's spell checker also can't spell Unisys but it's suggestion of "Unisex" is not as funny. On the other hand, the other day I misspelled the word "pedophile" (in teleoscope: Blinded by my anti-Reuters Bias) and Blogger's spelling checker suggested "bedfellow".
