dc bee suckers

All you signing up for DC Bee, I hate to confirm that the game is rigged. Home now I looked up the word given.

Websters says that “recusancy” starts with “r e c u s” which is where the wanna-be DC Bee ring leaders cut off the Metblog spell champ mid-word.

Cheating like that does not happen at Wonderland Trivia Night.

    I would say that you *claim* you’re Metblogs’ spelling champ, but your posts definitely say otherwise ;)

    Whoa, lets not be confused – I am *not* a spelling anything – I refuse to be bound by these odd “English” rules.

    I did however, call in two spelling aces, I do have such friends, to be Metblog Spelling Ringers. Both were denied a fair fight.

    I actually think this post is pretty funny. Especially for a drunk guy. I can also vouch for the truth of the post as the victim of the “recusancy” scandal. Not to mention that we couldn’t even find the word they gave Wayan in the dictionary.

    This game isn’t rigged. It’s been exactly 78 years. Don’t you think someone would have caught on and investigated it? They choose the words and say them in order. It’s unlucky if your number let’s say, is 28. And word number 28 is uitlander (which is pronounced ‘a-lander’). Too bad! :-)

    Who are and what words did the “ringers” go out on? I’m interested, because its all on tape. Also the resource for the words come from the official scripps national spelling bee book. However that said I am curious to know if you really are serious and really do care about losing off the bat, because the whole time during the competition you heckled other contestants while they were on the mic. It seems you were there to sabbotage yourself and the competition with your “idea” of humor. its funny already so why up the ante?

    For the record:
    Recusancy- is in the the official spelling bee book, however was not the word Wayan was given. A girl by the name of Liz was given he word and she spelled it r-e-s-u-n… which is where she failed, understandbly its an usual word. But this is contrary to what Wayan states in his blog.
    The word Wayan went out on was GLOGG he spelled it glugg.
    End of story all is fair and square, I am considering posting the video but I have more important things to do.

    Fools – it’s not the words, it’s the selection of the words that I say is rigged.

    By purposely selecting words for contestants, instead of assigning words to players in a random order, you give the perception, if not the actual action, of choosing words you feel are “right” for each contestant. This, I say is ultimately biased, and therefore DC Bee is rigged.

    Choose words randomly, so that its chance and not your choice who gets what, and then the game is fair again. Until then, the wanna-be DC Bee ring leaders are, consciously or not, picking winners.

    Ok Wayan, I think you are simply sour grapes and a bad loser. If you had attended the other bees you would be astonished by how hard and obscure the words are that the champions took on in full glory, the winners truly won. however if you believe the words were unfairly chosen, then that implies you may have suceeded otherwise, when you state previously what a bad speller you are, and I have seen in your other posts, you are a bad speller and thats OK. so what gives? Is it that you weren’t popular like you imagined. come on now give it up and admit you lost fair and square.

    Lost? I had no chance to begin with. I did DC Bee as a lark. If I’d actually passed the first round then everyone, including my friends, would swear it was rigged, for me. Add to that, I think DC Bee is a great idea for DC – lawyers will love the challenge.

    I am just disappointed that, by the process of your word choice, DC Bee is open to manipulation. Change the word pick process, and I’d love you again, I promise.

    I’m not a moderator so unfortunetly I can’t pick the words, although I have been a contestant in the past.
