Microsoft Word is a word processor. It is not a “text editor” in the strict sense. Do not write a post in Word, and then cut/paste it into the Write panel in your blog. Bad things will happen. Mean, nasty, evil, horrible things will happen. You will lose all of your hair, and you will grow a wart on your nose. Your dog will have 24 puppies and your cat 11 kittens. Your new “goldfish” will turn out to be a pirhana and will eat all of the other fish in your aquarium. The letter carrier will bring you twice as many bills, and you will be forced to use
Windows95 on a Pentium II 333MHz with a 13" monitorfor the rest of your life.
A meteor will crash through your house, burning it to the ground. The space rock will wind up in your neighbour’s yard, and she will claim it as hers and will sell it to a university for $100 000. She will use part of the money to successfully sue you for the pain and suffering she had to endure because your burning home nearly burned down her home.
Your insurance company will declare the meteorite incident as an “act of God” and will not pay to rebuild your house. The bank will foreclose your mortgage and demand payment in full. Since you will be late to work the morning after the incinceration of your house, your boss will decide to use that as an excuse to fire you and hire his cousin’s brother’s uncle’s sister’s grandmother’s paperboy to do your job. Your credit cards will be frozen when the companies learn that you are unemployed, and your automobile finance company will repossess your car.
Penniless and desperate, you will find your computer skills will be reduced to being “the one that can fix the till” at your local Golden Arches restaurant, where you will by terrorized by your shift supervisor who is 15 years your junior and who has to have her mom drive her to work because she’s too young for a driver’s licence.
So, that is, in a nutshell, why you should NEVER EVER write a post using Microsoft Word and then cut and paste it into WordPress.
Oh, and a big, cranky, glow-in-the-dark ungulate might pay you a visit, too. 🙂
