Numbnut Spelling Bee
In what will go down as a classic bit of
spelling bee history, Sameer Mishra briefly believed he had
been asked to spell the word "numbnut."
The word he was really supposed to spell was
numnah. He later explained that his surprised look was not
because he thought 'numbnut' was a silly word, but actually
because he had never studied 'numbnut' and it could have been
spelled many different ways.
