Spellcheck Hates Misquitoes Too

In my recent entry I misspelled the word 'mosquitoes'. I did it in Word Perfect first, then I cut and pasted the words into my blog. I ran spellcheck on both as I tend to type pretty fast and thus, screw up quite a bit. Apparently the programmers of spellcheck dislike the tiny little blood-suckers as much as I do because these are the results of my misspelling of 'mosquitoes'

Word Perfect gave me these results with definitions
machetes-  a heavy knife with abroad blade

makeweights- Something added on a scale in order to meet a required weight

mikados- an Emperor of Japan

milkweeds- Any of numerous plants of the genus Asclepias, having milky juice, usually opposite leaves, variously colored flowers grouped in umbels, and pods that split open to release seeds with downy tufts. Also called silkweed.

Blogger these:
mosque- a Muslim house of worship 

masque- A dramatic entertainment, usually performed by masked players representing mythological or allegorical figures, that was popular in England in the 16th and early 17th centuries

miscue- A mistake

misc- Which really isn't a word, but part of a word.

Misti-A girl who may or not make her living swinging, partially or totally unclad, on a long silver pole in a very dark room which is in a very dark and somewhat oddly smelling building in a not so good part of town.
