I have no idea what you're talking about. It suggested "size" or "sizzle", not "sex"

It's a spell checker, and this isn't a egg, it does that in all spell checkers (a similar egg was posted before about ms word) would you think that someone spelling "ses" or something and it coming up as "sex" would be a easter egg? ;P

apparently my one changes "zzzz" to "zizz" (I don't even know what "zizz" means!)

When you do the egg the spell checker's suggestion for the correct word is "sex".

This egg works on V.4.0a too. Interesting, this seems to be intentional, rather than just a spellchecker error. I tried one, two, three and five "z" characters, but only the "zzzz" had the mentioned effect.

i think it is a result of the spell checker. it makes a guess based on how it sounds. phenetically it is secz the z at the end must be what is giving the unusual suggestion

This egg also works on version 3.0 for win 3.1. It thinks that the correct word should be "sex".

apparently no one gets it. "zzzz" meaning sleep or snoring... like instead of sleeping you should be having sex? Wow, yeah, it's pretty funny now.

I was assuming it was funny because it was saying that zzzz, meaning sleep usually, is the same as sex, meaning sex is no better than sleep. That's just me though.

Almost all the early versions of most Microsoft word processors have this, and it's definitely not an egg.

Mr. anonymous fellow is right.......this isn't really an egg. it sort of is, but it's not, because you can delete it. this works on word, too. it says sex because the dude who wrote this put it as an auto-correct thing (at least on word.)

isn't it weird how the word phonetically isn't spelled phonetically? it should be funeticlee or funeticly
