Run this through your spell checker:
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee four two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
Eye am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
Makes sense to me!
That just illustrates the limitations of spell checkers. Most of them just check the spelling of individual words and not the context in which they are written. So long as the words as written are correctly spelt and are in the dictionary used by the checker, they will not be flagged.
I have seen this before. Although we can tell by looking at it that the spelling is obviously incorrect, the checker doesn't pick up on this because they are all valid words that are in its dictionary. What makes this one particularly interesting is that you can read it out and it sounds as though the spelling is correct.
