Pronunciation: wow und dawg

Sentence: Elvis took his hound for a walk. But the hound didn't like being held back by his leash, so he raced in circles around Elvis, coiling, looping, twisting, spiraling, and curling the leash around Elvis' legs and ankles, even his blue suede shoes. Elvis sang out in misery as he tripped and tumbled down: "You aint nothin but a wounddog, Now I'm cryin all the time. Making me nothin but a bound ground hog, Cryin all the time. Well, you aint never caught a rabbit And you aint no friend of mine."

Etymology: Wound Dog is a play on Hound Dog. There is a way to correct the spelling of the word! After clicking on edit beneath save and go back is "oops! I want to change the spelling of my word" and with a click on that ... voila!

Yes mweinmann, I agree. Glad it was unintentional. Even when this happens deliberately, I just consider it a form of compliment/flattery.
