T9 Subspellings

You know how they say you can’t spell dysfunctional without the word ‘fun’ and other stuff like that? Well, if you run it through the T9 predictive text system, there are other interesting entertaining things that you can’t spell words without: as you try to type a longer word, sometimes a fun variant of the first part of it comes up first. For example, you can’t spell:

Info without God
Mormon without moron
Smart without soap
School without pain

I prefer the theological implications of the first to the second. I think we can all agree, though, that the final pair is the truest of them all.

  1. Found out yesterday that you also can't spell tongue without vomit, nor pronounce without spoon!
