February 2, 2012: Who said spelling bees are boring?
Leave it to YouTube to find a real champ. The word is heron. You know that freshwater wading bird with a long neck, tapered beak, and often a crested head, that feeds mainly on fish, frogs, and small mammals of the family: Ardeidae. Well, that might have been going on in this guy's head as he manages to stretch his turn to almost 3 minutes. I was surprised he didn't say, "Could you spell it?"
We have to give this guy credit: 1) He made us laugh; 2) He now has a very successful viral video he can be proud of the rest of his life; and 3) Though it appears he was suffering a temporary memory loss, he managed to remember the rules of a spelling bee. I smell a future lawyer.
