Mahatma Tony sez:

Actually, I don't no how the beetles spelt it.  I just rote
down watt I've herd on the recording.  The miss-spellings are
mine.  Perhaps you mist the point.  You are arguing with a
joke.  I'm glad to here you fined misspellings hillarious;
sometimes the laughter doesn't come threw in your righting.

Buy the weigh, in explaining what was so amusing -- "mis-
spellings weren't inentional" -- you had two misspellings.
Does that mien you should bee humiliated over some
misspellings?  Of coarse snot.  Knowbody cares.

And I sea you've replied yet again to my posting of too weaks
ago.  For the third or forth thyme.  Nobuddy cares about that
ether.  Time to listen to Mother Mery's werds of wisdum

   "Let it be."

That Mother Mery is no fuel.
