    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP) - A computer spell-checker run amok christened several Pennsylvania high school students with new - and in some cases unflattering - last names.

    Middletown Area High School&#039;s yearbook listed Max Zupanovic as "Max Supernova," Kathy Carbaugh as "Kathy Airbag" and Alessandra Ippolito as "Alexandria Impolite," just to name a few.

    "It was kind of funny, but kind of rude at the same time," Ippolito said.

    The mistakes were found on four of the yearbook&#039;s 176 pages, co-editor Amanda Gummo said.

    Ed Patrick of Taylor Publishing, which printed the book, said his company is responsible for the errors and will provide free stickers printed with the correct names.

    "It happens all the time, every year," Patrick said. "Look at any yearbook in the country."</div>


    Now that is a reason to buy a yearbook. They need to turn the spellcheck off on these machines and do it by hand.
