The Spelling Bee

index_01.gifIt’s Spelling Bee time again. It was on the TV at lunch today, and I couldn’t help but watch in shock, horror and awe as the various home-schooled kids hemmed and hawed, asked for definitions and origins, and definitions and origins and “oh, please, could you use it in a sentence.” What was hilarious, though, was watching it with the closed captioning going:

>> [WORD]?
Yes, [WORD]

Can I get a definition please?

*definition is lovingly pasted here*

Okay. [WORD]

And they make the attempt.

Seriously, Deaf people watch this and laugh, I guarantee you.

I wonder what the descriptive video service does for it…

Be sure not to miss DC Sports Bog’s coverage, which is just as funny.
