For newer members or anyone not familiar wwith "morans" or "morels".
If you're been scratching your head at some of the on-purpose misspellings, "special" terms and "private jokes" here at DU, I invite you to visit the DU Glossary. Pure comedy gold that will keep you in stitches and make you wonder how FReepers manage to tie their shoes in the morning.

Check it out!

My grandfather and I used to gather them in the woods. Cooked in a little butter with just a bit of salt and pepper. Yummmmmm

7. Are morans as good tasting as morels?
...if so...then we've found a solution to a political problem?

2. Good morels are excellent. Watch for bad morels, though.
And false morels are dangerous.

5. Are you series?
I have always wondered about this one. I can understand being one letter off like with moran or morels. But how do you get from "aspersions" to "asparagus"? That requires a special case of teh stupid. :shrug:

9. All it really requires is an initial misspelling ...
... and careless use of a spell-checker.

20. Yes, I tried an experiment
I opened up a text file using Open Office and typed "asparsions." The spell-checker offered up various choices such as "aspartames" and "usurpation." The poster was probably in a hurry to express his or her self and made the wrong selection.

12. An example of a Moran


This is the picture that started it. No one seems to know who this guy is. I'm sure he got a hair cut, lost the mustache and acquired some decent clothes to better hide.
The picture was taken by a DU'er who 'helped' him with the spelling on his sign. He originally only had 'brain' misspelled. Then the DU'er convinced him that he had 'moron' misspelled also.
