Bill Gates vs. Crayola

Microsoft Outlook knows many brands. It knows to put a hyphen in Wal-Mart. It knows to capitalize Kleenex. But I have discovered that Bill must be at war with the Binny and Smith company...

Microsoft Outlook doesn't recognize Crayola. It doesn't tell me to capitalize it. It doesn't acknowledge the existence of the word at all except to tell me that what I MEANT to type is: cariole . I don't even know what that IS!

Clear obvious war.

Was Bill harmed by Crayola crayons as a child? Did he have a horrible pre-school incident? Or was he possibly just raised in a Rose Art family? (The Horrors!!)

Watch the news, I bet this war will be surfacing on Bloomberg any day now.

  1. Sis, after a thorough perusing of your posts, little more need be said than the fact that you quite prolifically, quite amusingly, quite beautifully possess the gift of gab.
