Could The 7 Dirty Words Be Used In Wisconsin’s Adult Spelling Bee
In Wisconsin's adult spelling bee, could the seven dirty words be used?
Spelling Bees Have Become A Big Deal And Get National Coverage
I remember having spelling bees in grade school. I never did well. I think the longest I lasted was the second round. The winner of each classroom would advance to an all-school spelling bee which was held as an assembly in the gym a couple of weeks later. Then, that was it. Nowadays, it goes on much further.
The Scripps National Spelling Bee has taken the competition to the next level. Competitors from all over the world participate in regional events for the right to spell at the national level. The finals have been televised for years on ESPN.
Best Movie About Spelling Bees
There are not a lot of movies about spelling bees. In fact, I can only think of one but it is a good one. The movie is "Bad Words" starring Jason Bateman. If you have not seen it, I highly suggest checking it out. The basic plot is about an adult who decides he wants to compete in the national spelling bee and finds a loophole so he can. Along the way, he causes major havoc. It is really funny.
There Should Be An Adult Spelling Bee
Spelling bees are for kids and students but I always thought there should be one for adults too. Especially, for the ones they did not do well back in the day. Then I saw some amazing news. There is actually one held in Wisconsin.
