"Twins separated at birth"? Does this person not realize that that word is an ethnic slur?

You're thinking of 'spic.

Look out, it's the PC Police. Hard to take someone seriously when they list their name as "Keepit Real."

Jayson Loyd "PC," my ass...I just found it funny that the reply made it look like the word was just some random person's name rather than a slur, which would make the AutoCorrect fail even funnier (IMO). There's nothing "PC" about that (although it's fair to wonder whether you'd be so cavalier if AutoCorrect had slurred people of YOUR background).
And who cares whether you take ME seriously or not? What matters is whether you addressed the point I was making. You didn't even try to do that--other than to call my comment "PC" without explaining what makes it so. Maligning your opponent personally doesn't by itself prove his ideas wrong. Anyway, it's just plain lazy to dismiss a person's statement on account of a clearly mirthful, facetious nickname. If there's anything that's hard to take seriously here, that's it.
And Matt...I've definitely seen the slur spelled with a "k"...even when it's a computer that utters it :)

"Spick and Spock" is what happens when Click and Clack: The Tappet Brothers go outer space!

Actually they're triplets. Spock went to Space Academy will Spick went into the cleaning business with his brother Span.
