Ok, so this felt a bit cheap, but I just came up with a list of about 3 dozen fruits and vegetables and listed them first in all caps, then in all lowercase right next to them. I did a find and replace with the morse code alphabet to replace all the capital letters with the morse equivalents. Then I did a find for each of the numbered items above, and they were all on my list!

1. Strawberry
2. Potato
3. Cantaloupe
4. Radish
5. Rhubarb
6. Orange
7. Lemon
8. Celery
9. Lettuce
10. Mango
