Spell Check

Had this weird thought today- I know spell check has saved my spelling many times, but who spell checks the dictionary?  I mean, I figure there has to be someone with ultimate “spell” authority, who has to sit down and make sure that all the crazy words in the dictionary are spelled correctly.  And when a new word is added, who gets to decide if that is the way it is going to be spelled?

I picture this guy sitting in a white room, with a huge head (Lots of brain), and big black glasses with the white tape in the middle, at a plain desk littered with other dictionaries.  I picture this man being very lonely, because he can never use just regular words, because he spends all day everyday reading tons of big words.

What do you think?  Just a weird thought for today!!!
