Today's lesson: How to spell "Rogue"
Lesson one: R-O-G-U-E
Note the G before the U. If you must, try to think of pronouncing it phoenetically, as "Row-Gew". It does help some spellers. Good. Now repeat.
Class, beware the many inherent pitfalls in this action. Many an X-Fan has revealed their ignorance or carelessness with a minor slip-up. Don't let this happen to you. Note the following examples:
1) The most common--and most dangerous--mistake: When you type or write "Rouge", you are actually talking about a women's red-hued makeup, usually applied to the cheeks. Probably not a great name for a superhero, even if she is a woman. Certainly, we would turn up our noses at her teammates, Lipstick, Mascara, Aqua Net, and Falsies. Even the less commonly used definitions of "rouge" don't really help it to work as a superhero code name. We certainly wouldn't want to refer to the woman who saved our lives or who works tirelessly against forces that would gladly destroy her people as "reddish" or "a point scored in Canadian football", now would we?
2) A less common mistake is "Rougue". This reveals a bit less ignorance, in that the user seems to understand that they have no idea how to spell "Rogue", so they try to cover themselves by placing U's on both sides of the G. It's clearly not a word at all, but at least the user is making an implied confession of their ignorance by using it. Still, let's not end up being the deficient X-Fan that begins inventing words due to their poor grasp of English and lack of respect for characters they profess to love.
3) All other spelling mistakes, including (but not limited to) "Roge", "Roug", "Rrggge", "Rououogueueueue", "Roger", "Rogan Josh", "Rosacea", and "Happy-Angry-Flying-Lady-Super-Darwin-Meta-Derma-Toxin-Project-X" will all nudge you gently across that fine line that separates X-Fanism from Down Syndrome.
So once again, with feeling: R-O-G-U-E
Very good. I'm proud of you all. You're going to grow up to be big, strong X-Fans one day. Class dismissed.
