How to Spell Properly

If you happen to be an American who is a member of the Favorite Mustache Organization, then this post is for you! Firstly you must rename yourselves the Favourite Moustache Organisation, otherwise you will never realise the mistakes you are making! And I will spend the rest of my life sniggering at your unfavourable behaviour; you will never be my neighbour; and I will centre myself around people who eat yoghurt, measure in metres, have ships in harbours and analyse chequered molluscs for likeable, unshakeable catalogues. So get with the programme!

Here is a list of 75 words spelt PROPERLY:
moustache
mum
snigger
speciality
titbit
colour
flavour
honour
behaviour
armour
harbour
neighbour
labour
labourious
favourite
savoury
fibre
sabre
centre
spectre
manoeuvre
metre
organise
recognise
realise
colonisation
organisation
analyse
catalyse
paralyse
prise open
analogue
catalogue
dialogue
monologue
caesium
diarrhoea
oesophagus
encyclopaedia
foetus
aeroplane
modelling
quarrelled
traveller
counsellor
fuelling
dialled
woollen
tranquillise
jewellery
ageing
likeable
liveable
rateable
saleable
sizeable
unshakeable
programme
axe
chequered
cosy
draught
grey
liquorice
mollusc
mould
pyjamas
plough
sceptic
storey
sulphur
tyre
vice
yoghurt
spelt

Now, if I find "Organize, Favorite, Likable or Center" used ever again then I cannot be blamed for my actions! Don't say I didn't warn you!

How gentemanly...what makes it hard for a swede is that we pronounce every letter in the word, while you have a lot of silence letters, so we really just spell it the way it sounds like...Alright then! My spelling is good? Denn i will continju to spell it te way it sounds like!

Not very efficient, then, is it? I mean all those extra letters and such. But then I guess it's highly inclusive, most of those words adding "u" to them, what? Us selfish folk in the US leaving "u" out, eh?

Guess there's just no honor in leaving out the extra letters. So bland, so, um, yeah, not colorful! Oh well, at least we both recognize the words no matter the difference in spelling.

I concede your list of proper spellings. Be that as it may, I hope you realize they are not correct in the US. Anyway, all in fun and good for a laugh (I think we agree on that one, don't we?)...
