A 14-year-old from San Diego won the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday. She won with the word “guetapens”. So we see how resident tubster Patrico does with his own SPELLING BEE. For everyone he gets right, he’s good. For everyone he gets WRONG…SHOCK HIS ASS!

Chances are you’ll never hear someone use it, let alone have to SPELL it. But if you’re like a lot of people, you struggle with much EASIER words. Here are the ten most common things NORMAL people misspell.
#1.) “A Lot.” It’s two words, but it’s amazing how many people still write it as one. It’s basically the worst spelling mistake you can make, because when people see it, they assume you can’t spell ANYTHING. ((SPELLED IT WRONG))
#2.) “Believe.” Some people spell it with the “E” before the “I”. But it’s one of those words that follows the rule, “I before E, except after C.” ((HE SPELLED IT RIGHT))
#3.) “Congratulations.” It’s spelled with a “T” in the middle, but some people spell it with a “D” because that’s how it sounds. The easiest way to remember is to just think of the word “Congrats,” which obviously ends in a “T,” not a “D”. ((HE SPELLED IT RIGHT))
#4.) “Embarrass.” It has two R’s in the middle, not one. And it has two S’s at the end. E-M-B-A-R-R-A-S-S. But again, it’s slightly tough to remember because it’s not the way it sounds. ((HE SPELLED IT WRONG))
#5.) “Fiery.” The way it’s spelled doesn’t really make sense, because you don’t just add a “Y” to the end of the word “fire.” The E switches places with the R, so it’s F-I-E-R-Y. ((HE SPELLED IT RIGHT))
#6.) “Grateful.” It’s not spelled G-R-E-A-T. It’s spelled G-R-A-T-E, as in a metal “grate” or a cheese “grater.” ((HE SPELLED IT RIGHT))
#7.) The Word “Its” . . . with and Without an Apostrophe. When people screw this one up, it’s usually just a typo. But just to recap: “It’s” with an apostrophe means “it is.” Without one, it’s possessive, like “his” or “hers.” ((THIS WASN’T USED))
#8.) “Lose.” When you “lose” something, it’s spelled with one O, not two. If it has two O’s, it’s “loose.” ((ANOTHER ONE NOT USED))
#9.) “Receipt.” It’s another one that doesn’t follow the “I before E, except after C” rule. It’s spelled R-E-C-E-I-P-T. ((HE GOT IT RIGHT))
#10.) “Misspell.” Most people make the mistake of spelling it with one S . . . and some people even try spelling it with THREE. But misspell has TWO S’s . . . M-I-S-S-P-E-L-L. ((HE GOT IT WRONG!))
