    G-U-E-R-D-O-N

    [size=13pt] Indiana boy spells 'guerdon' to win national bee[/size]

    news.yahoo.com

    WASHINGTON - As it turned out, Sameer Mishra provided more than just comic relief at the 2008 Scripps National Spelling Bee. He ended up winning the title.

    The 13-year-old from West Lafayette, Ind., who often had the audience laughing with his one-line commentaries was all business when he aced "guerdon" — a word that appropriately means "something that one has earned or gained" — to win the 81st version of the bee Friday night.

    Good for him...those are some tough words. He would be banned from PPo...he spells too well. ;D

    I saw video when he was asked to spell "numnah" and he thought they said "numnuts"...very funny.
