Errrr... can you spell that again?

Here is the American Heritage dictionary's explanation of the word breakthrough.


1. An act of overcoming or penetrating an obstacle or restriction.
2. A military offensive that penetrates an enemy's lines of defense.
3. A major achievement or success that permits further progress, as in technology.


This is how a teenager spelt breakthrough on Sunday that had us all in stitches. Stuff in (brackets) added by me. Spellings all original.

BRATHROUGH (a see-through bra?)

BRAKETHROUGH (how to break through if you jam on the brakes first?)

Finally he got it right on the third try. LOL!
