The Scripps National Spelling Bee ended in a tie last year, which hadn't happened for 52 years.  But yesterday, it happened AGAIN. One of the last words was impressive as all heck.  13-year-old Vanya Shivashankar's final word was "scherenschnitte" (see her spell it here).

Scherenschnitte is my new favorite word, and so the Y-105 Spelling Bee was made up of scherenschnitte's cousins! Hear the whole silly mess here...
