LMAO! Very good. Spell that sucker like it sounds.

Makes no sense the way some words are spelled.

Gruff/Enough....why not Enuff?

Shoes/Zoos...why not Shoos?

Freeze/Trees...why not Treeze? Then you have Please...why not Pleeze? Pfffft.

But I still say, do it the write...err 'right' way. There's a certain amount of satisfaction in it. A lot of people view correct spelling and grammar as a challenge and merely like to match wits with others. Otherwise we wouldn't have games like Scrabble, or crossword puzzles, or spelling bees. Write?
