Spell check

But it wouldn't be Bill's bad, because Worcester should not be spelled W, o, r, c, e, s, t, e, r.

Say this: Puss. Say this: Wuss. Say these two words. Pusster. Wusster. Good. Now say this: Worcester. Say this: Work. Say this: Worc. Now say these two words: Workster. Worcster. Good. Now say this: Worcester.

It makes as much sense for the word Worcester to include an o, c, and second r, as it does for the holiday Easter to include bunny rabbits.

"Yes ma'am? My street name and number? It's, 442 Worcester Ridge. What's that? Spell it? Ye,s ma'am? W, u, s, s, t, e, r. Thank you."

You know who I bet can spell Worcester first try? That Sully guy who landed the plane on the Hudson. He's extra clever.
