Do the suicide options include trying to work out why "cant" is underlined green?

You mean instead of red? I guess because cant is an actual word, just not the right one to use there. Or were you making a "kick a guy while he's already down" kind of joke? I'm not sure what "Clippy" would do in that case. Clippy's mission of course was:

1. Be as annoying as possible under the guise of being helpful
2. Never actually be helpful

In this case, its goals may have been in conflict.

I can never find a paper clip when I need one... I guess this explains it.
