OT: Seriously OT request

From:Adam Walker <carrajena@...>

I know this is off topic, but I thought someone here
might be able to help me.  I'm looking for two
documents that circulate regularly around offices and
on the internet.  One is the spellchecker poem.  You
know the one wherein every word is spelled correctly,
yet more than half of them are the wrong words.  This
is one of those things frequently found on cubicle

The second one I'm looking for is one I've gotten in
emails several times over the years.  It consists of
two paprgraphs identical except for the punctuation.
If memory serves the first iteration tells the tale of
a couple falling madly in love -- the second the tale
of a couple ready to kill each other.  No words change
or move, only punctuation shifts and swaps.

If you have seen either of these documents and could
forward me a copy I would be grateful.  My students on
the other hand . . .
