And Misspell Should Be Spelled "Mispell"

Ate a pancake this morning. Do you think "Iraq" is misspelled? I think it ought to be spelled Eee'rahck, but I can't seem to coerce anyone into caring. I just wish we had some discernable priorities regarding countries that force us to misspell their names. Seychelles, for instance. Also Maldives. Also some other places I can't remember right now. I'm on my way to the kitchen to prepare a sandwich.

We should refuse to discuss anything related to them until the spell their names correctly.

What kind of sambitch did you make?

Ester,

Nobody is going to care about how you would like things spelled. I would say why but I'm hungry now.

And while we're on the subject, "misspelled" should be "misspelt".

Iraq isn't misspelled, it is mispronounced by many semi-literate borderline-retards like Bush. It is pronounced (as you said) eee-rahk. NOT "eye-rack". Same with Iran, pronounced eee-rahn and NOT "eye-ran". Sheesh. No wonder other industrialized countries look at Americans in amazement and shake their heads when we want to invade a country and aren't even smart enough to be able to pronounce its name correctly. But what do we expect when we have a president who can't even pronounce "nuclear"?
