Whacky/wacky. Random post.

When I read the comments for my "Whacky Christmas Card" from my friends Cheryl and Patti, they both spelled it wacky. I was embarrassed, thinking I had made a spelling error. Those of you who know me well, know that I love Google! So of course I had to google whacky and this is what I found, for starters. I didn't bother reading any further.

"Although the original spelling of this word meaning “crazy” was “whacky,” the current dominant spelling is “wacky.” If you use the older form, some readers will think you’ve made a spelling error."

I guess I am stuck in the "crazy, whacky past."

Have a great day all!!


  1. heeheehee you goose! I'd never even thought about that! LOL but you "Google" girl you ARE whacky or are you wacky??? heehee


  2. That is funny, but good to know! I would have thought it was wacky too. But i probably woudln't have noticed that you spelled it Whacky! Anyway love your pink tree card too!

  3. I guess that makes me whacky because I would have spelled wacky "whacky" too.....making me look stuck in the whacky past too.....LOL!
