Satire alert

Ummm... FYI, the video a few posts down with the "Congressman" whose son won't be quiet? That's a video from the Onion. so it's completely fake. It's not very funny if it's real, I don't think, since the dad goes inappropriately over the top. But as fakery, more funny. I think. Just to be clear. I'm not endorsing congressman dad's behavior. Behaviour -- that spelling's for you, 'oala and hedgehog. Humourous. Colourful. Shhhedule. Not spelled that way, but pronounced that way.

Thank you for all those wonderful spellings just for me and MkK. Oh, and the pronunciation. I am beyond words.

I saw the video was from The Onion. That was a bit of a clue.

Also spotted the Onion thing, although I know someone who didn't...

Loving the spelling. But FH - write out 100 times - McK, McK, McK.

I spotted it as soon as I posted, McK.

Writing it out won't help. I once wrote "riligion" in an essay and had to write it out three times correctly. I only got two of the three right.

All I can do is grovel and hope to avoid those dripping claws.

OMG, I thought it was real! Then again, my research skills are nothing to brag about.
