My Kingdom for Spellcheck

If I haven't mentioned it, my dayjob involves writing software that helps high school kids get into college.  During the testing just yesterday, this little exchange occurred:

"Once more into the breech!"

"Once more into the pants?"


"You spelled breach wrong.  Breech, breeches...I couldn't resist the pants joke."

"Oh.  I swear I thought you were making a completely different commentary on the value of getting into college."


Full disclosure - I'm actually the one that spelled breech wrong :).  My bad.
