I missed the Spelling Bee tonight, even though my mother loves me enough to remind me in advance. But even catching up after the fact, the Scripps National Spelling Bee never fails to disappoint. Check out this kid, courtesy of Gawker.
YES! Love Jacob.
But this kid (below) is still the best human on ever, spelling bee or no spelling bee. (Don’t worry. Maya Angelou is still the 2nd best.)
The best spelling bee movie is still the amazing documentary “Spellbound” (which now I have to re-watch tonight, if I could only find a VCR because yes, I own this on VHS.) But the Jason Bateman comedy “Bad Words” was also pretty satisfying. Did you see it? Did you watch the Bee tonight? Do you want to participate in adult spelling bees? ME TOO!
