    Obviously, someone used Word's spell checker instead of their brain. One company I know of sold some teleports, but when the press release went out after Word's autocorrect feature "fixed" it, it said they sold some terrorists.

    I just did a quick check, and Word's first choice of a correction for Musharaf is indeed Mascara.
