Stubbly

I was looking a the word 'stub'. And then I realised that it was like one of those random permutations of letters. Like an overturned 'bust', or scattered 'tubs'. Pseudorandom. But why should pseudorandom not look non-random?

That question bugged me through dinner. Why 'curry'? And are the two rs in curry interchangeable? Or are they like the Greek double r in 'diarrhoea' and 'catarrh'? At least the pirate 'arr' is easier.

And then I knew what I was thinking. The system doesn't work. It is desperately trying to permutate itself to viability, but it no longer can. It has gone -bsut-.
