When spellcheck just doesn’t work…

May 21, 2014

Another oopsie! that shows that spellcheckers need to be used with caution and supplemented by real eyes attached to a real brain. Otherwise, legitimate, but erroneous, words get through.

A 2013 album by Robben Ford (Bringing it back home) has these tracks (note the title for #4):

  1. Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky (4:55)
  2. Birds Nest Bound (5:51)
  3. Fair Child (4:24)
  4. Oh, Virginia (4:18)
  5. Slick Capers Blues (3:50)
  6. On That Morning (7:14)
  7. Traveler’s Waltz (3:34)
  8. Most Likely You Can Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine (4:57)
  9. Trick Bag (4:06)
  10. Fool’s Paradise (5:37)

However, Barnes and Noble’s website has the tracks listed as:

B&N Oopsy[Thanks to my DH who spotted this one]



  1. That’s hilarious! Every bit as funny as the school superintendent candidate who had “pubic” instead of “public” on his resume!

  2. Hi, I recently found out that Word 2010 spell checker doesn’t work on text that is pasted in – even if I use the paste with no formatting. I’ve tried lots of things, but nothing seems to work. :-) joan

  3. That’s odd. The only thing I can think of is that the text is set to not check spelling, but if you paste as unformatted, I’d assume that setting wouldn’t apply.


  4. I checked that option. Any new text I type is checked – it just overlooks what was pasted in.
