What is your favorite "spell check" mangling?

Often, when using various versions of "spell check," proper names will be associated as totally unrelated and comedic words. Do you have an example of such faux pas?

Another professional wrote in an email to me that I was write, rather than right. I had to read the sentence a couple of times to determine whether I was supposed to 'write' something. :rofl:

I have seen a few other funny one's but off hand can't remember where exactly, although there have been some funny errors in some technical documents or journal articles that I have reviewed.

I can't remember any of the funny ones any more, but it's because of those annoyances that I turned spell check off. My typos are not nearly as scary as spell check's attempts at correcting the correctly-spelled, technical terms. :bugeye:
