Sum thyme’s I’m ache Thai pose

Sum thyme’s I’m ache Thai pose
Butt eyes up hose
Hats apart off fusing
Come pewter’s. Whirl oozing

Are ebb ill it he two ought toe
Core hector weed rat her
Ma sheens um owe no
how herds chews too gat her

let hers inn us pacific hoarder,
Witch his beater. En dime,
air head squid gills a porter
whose know shaving thyme

Whiff hit snot hunter limed inn read
They’re snow since inn re reed ding
Too Czechs peeling four miss leading
Thinks eye mite half’s ed.

Okay I got as far as some times I make typos
but I suppose that's part of using computers.

after that I lose it. can't look at it and not read the words that are there.

This is closer to say Elizibethan English where spelling took a backseat to phonetics (so to speak) and spelling became much more important when the modern language was standardized.

To me mispelling modern English is like fingernails screeching on a blackboard. Grammatical mistakes are more forgivable but mispelling online is not when we have the ubiquitous spellcheck.  I can tell more people are posting from their phones as aurocorrect seems to cause plenty of out of syntax mistakes.

So yes, at least to me- spelling is important...

 I hate mispelling also; it gripes my a$$. Grammatical mistakes happen too but that is the current state of our education system. I posted this as an amusement.

 The Tubercle still wishes we all would resort back to the glorious days of prose.

 Out of respect to the Major, The Tubercle will attempt to refrain. :D

 Acutally I will lose all that fancy bookin' what was learnt up in that there uppity college I attended and commence to a'speakin' and a'spellin' like a true South Carolinean ought to.

 I don't know whichin' will be the worse.
