The Burning Crusade's enduring war on spelling

A friend of mine opened up a chest in the Slave Pens the other day and received some very nice blue rogue shoulders. Since I'm a rogue with Bloodfang shoulders -- not the best in the world -- I offered him 40 gold for the item, which he accepted. It was only after I equipped them that I discovered that I was now the proud owner of the "Demon Hide Spaulers."

Not a big deal, right? Spaulders isn't a very common word. That's what I thought until today, when the "Torquoise Brooch" dropped. Come on. And let's not start on the many player-created mispellings of Shattrath and Draenei.

Have you found any other ... interestingly spelled items in BC?
