Autocorrect of the day.

I was putting one of my fog-walk photos on Facebook...

P1130621

... and — prompted to write something about it — I began "Yesterday, on the foggy shore..." and got autocorrected to "foggy whore."

Not much of a photog, but snapped this photo recently from the balcony of my lake home up nort'.

First ice, first light, fog

Memoirs of a Foggy Whore:
It was 1928 or 1931 maybe, I have trouble with dates, and -- where was I? Oh yes, I was giving the gentleman -- his name escapes me -- I was giving him the "Lindy Propeller" when the Police or the Fire department -- I can't remember which -- came through the door. Or the window. For some reason I remember parakeets being part of the story. I like parakeets, especially the yellow ones. Anyway, it was quite the wild time...

I am Laslo.

I drilled a few holes on Monona yesterday. Definitely pro conditions out there. Eek.

Dickens saw rules in the Court of Chancery as a foggy whore. But it had to deal with Esther Summerson, who was Dickens' version of LaAlthouse. Guess who won.

I've gone through the ice on my lake up north. Fortunately is was in about 4-5' of water so it was easy to get back on the ice. No early ice for me anymore.

My Samsung's autocorrect is far stupider and more aggressive than your autocorrect.

Haiku to you

Yesterday on the foggy whore
With misty eyes
Gazed on her no more

Did Bill prefer "foggy whores" to Hillary's Foggy Bottom?

Catch an eel.

@Althouse, are you sure it was an autocorrect and not a case of your ring finger accidentally typing the 'w' key, which is just about the 's'?

Autocorrect is the universal blame attractor. It is always at fault. The web is far simpler that way.

Regarding ice fishing, the local restaurants are serving fried perch again, one of my favorite things about winter here.
