    Ol' Hoober Goober, a spellin' champ was he.
    He could spell nearly every word that he knew to be.
    He could type and write and  cut and paste
    But, Oh the mistakes he would make in his haste.
    In his diaries, he would write and write
    just to find out that they were not right.
    He could caption and explain and do drop down typo's
    And they made no sense, they thought he was psycho's.
    He looked up the words in the big red book
    But seldom on the right page did he look.
    His files came back, by the truck load they came
    For spell-check and grammar-fix to make them the same.
    He cussed and pouted and threw a fit
    But back at the 'puter he had to sit.
    He worked and he worked and he worked some more
    Until his wrists and hands and fingers were sore.
    He got 'em a done and fixed up just right
    and sent 'em all back to the office that night.
    They all passed and were paid after review
    and he could quit holding his breath 'till he was blue.
    Ol' Goober never got spell-check to work
    He certainly didn't want to be just a clerk.
    He was a 'juster and was above all that
    and on his face, he fell with a "splat".
    Ya really gotta know how to write 'n' spell
    So your stuff goes through really swell.
    Ya gotta know sentences and paragraphs and such
    Or, .................you just won't amount to much.
    Happy Trails

    Wow, Hoober Goober! Haven't had lunch with that guy in a long time.
    And this second line is here to simply provide a rhyme.
