Bringing a whole new meaning to tart food

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 1:06 am

Restaurant owners… please, for the love of all that is holy, don’t blindly accept the suggestions of Microsoft Word’s spell checker, unless you’re willing to serve up another sort of flesh entirely:

Microsoft Word's spell checker corrects 'prosciutto' to 'prostitute'.

And yes, that is a completely unaltered screen shot. O_o

Edited to add: Egads… it gets worse. OS X’s built-in spell checker— the one used in Safari, Mail.app, and iWork— also suggests ‘prostitute’ for ‘prosciutto’. Ouch! OpenOffice.org, on the other hand, actually recognizes ‘prosciutto’ as a word…
