DC Daily Item: Speln-nawt sew Gr8, aktualie…

S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G F-A-L-E!

S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G F-A-L-E!

Even before an unhealthy amount of LOLCats I was an awful speller, and always a little put off by people who were good at it.  Why devote yourself to the memorization of such mundane sequences of letters and rules about which ones go where when there was spellcheck?  And even when you spell something incorrectly, you have about a 93/100 chance that the person reading what you rote knows wat you are takling about anywae.
See what I mean :)

That said, these days I’m impressed by it.   Scripps is in town folks-and I wouldn’t want to mess with any of these kids on a Scrabble (or Wordscraper or whatever) board.  The “twitchy little freaks” as Mr. Tony Kornheiser likes to call them are indeed a spectacle to behold.  The competition started Tuesday, and is on TV today, tomorrow and the finals on Friday night.

Or, if you need some lunch money, I know where you could find about 293 kids who are used to forking it over…kidding! kidding!  Don’t go beat up spellers for money!  That have very aggressive parents who won’t take kindly to you ruining what they have worked very, very hard…I mean what the KIDS have worked very, very hard to accomplish for them…the kids of course, not the parents.

In the meantime, check out the wiki page for a list of winners and words they won with.
