Feature Fun Friday: Nothing like the spelling bee

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Life in Technicolor II by Coldplay

English is the greatest language in the world. Besides causing no end of grief to kids of all ages (it's a non-discriminatory kind of torture) from the time we're in kindergarten, we also just have some of the strangest words I've ever seen. And who can forget the spelling bee? While usually not as entertaining as reality tv or something like the Miss America pageant, it does have its gems. :)

Presenting today for your viewing pleasure, is another double feature. One, a real instance at a real spelling bee, and the other a short clip from the fantastic film, Akeelah and the Bee (man I love Laurence Fishburne in this). A small homage to words, and where we'd be without them. Because without words, how would we have stories? :) Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
