Is that like going postal? by wiredog (4.00 / 2) #9 Wed Mar 14, 2007 at 03:55:30 AM EST

Firefox spell check has fun with cow-orkers. Some of the recommended replacements:
cow-corkers (Sounds pretty wrong.)
cow-porkers (Wrong and illegal.)
cow-yorkers (Isn't one of those running for President?)
cow-workers (The new, politically correct, name for "cowboys".)
