1. Are you certain that it's not a word for an elephant with a head cold?

3. That's not a bad word, actually - a combination of "sick" and "infantile"
Too bad it wasn't a deliberate construct... :)

5. Jeebus. Don't any of those people
Know how to use Spell Check? I let the occasional typo slip by me, particularly if it's a real English word, though not the right one (my ifs ins and its have been known to switch places). But to screw up that badly is almost heroic in its idiocy.

9. Why do I have the feeling
They've never heard of Firefox as well? I'm really a dreadful speller, the kind who has to have Dictionary.com on an open tab at all times, but Firefox rarely fails me except when it comes to arcane medical terms.
