    Best one I've seen is suggesting "schnauzers" as a replacement for "schmoozers."

    Certainly there are other great ones.

    Have at it.

    If you were ever covering the Medieval re-enactment held in Pennsylvania during the summer, your spell check would replace "Pennsic War" with "Penis War," and it would be funny.

    I know this because I accidentally hit "Change all" in a story one time on accident and put it on our online site for about 30 seconds before I -- in mid freak-out -- went in and quick-edited it.

    A kid on the WHL team I used to cover had the handle 'Brett Draney.' Spellcheck would always send it back 'Breath Drano.'

    Cracked me up every time ...

    Scott Korzenowski is a News-Press communist.

    The time one of our writers invented "cunningness" and the spell check said to change it to . . . you know.
