Spell Checking the MySQL Tools Vocabulary

I was sending an email to a co-worker today and noticed two funny spelling suggestions as replacements for MySQL tools I was writing about in the email. It prompted me to stick the entire list of MySQL tools into the email and see what else the spell checker comes up with. Here goes:

mysqldump - dumplings
mysqlhotcopy - photocopy
myisamcheck - checkmates
mysqlaccess - inaccessiblity
mysqladmin - maladministration
myisamlog - mythologist
mysqlimport - importantly
mysqlbug - mealybugs
mysqlmanager - managerially
mysqlshow - showgirls

Showgirls is pretty funny, but my favorite is the replacement for mysqladmin. Maladministration is defined as:

To administer or manage inefficiently or dishonestly. (dictionary.com)

I think this could be the framework for a great presentation on MySQL, perhaps the outline for a keynote to MySQL techies. If not, I'm sure there's a use for it somewhere.

Oh, and I wouldn't want to forget the mealybugs.
