Subject: RE: BS: A person of color and a colored person
If we're onto spelling howlers, I have dozens up my sleeve from my teaching days.
I asked my class of 7yr olds to write a lovely presents wish-list for Father Christmas, and decorate it with pictures of angels, holly and so on.
One dear little girl wrote in huge wonky letters "I want a pair of tits". I often wondered if Father Christmas obliged.
Another class was set to write a story about a knight. I suggested they describe his horse (description was everything) and name it with an inspiring name. One boy wrote, "His hores was big and strong and had big feet, It was corld Fluffy."
Finally, another story was set in the Middle Ages, and a child wrote "The men went out to cut the corn. The fields were humming with incest."
