This is a true story. Many years ago, before MS Word, I used WordPerfect. One day I was writing a script for a cooking show. I wrote a sentence which included the words, "When filleting fish, always ...", and so on.

Upon completion I used the spell checker -- just to pick up typos, of course. Unfortunately it didn't recognise the word 'filleting' and instead it recommended 'fellating'.

I couldn't understand why a spell checker that didn't include 'filleting' would include 'fellating'. I decided it was probably because it was American.
