Smile, Bro!: Kid Wins Spelling Bee, Zero F***s Are Given

June 3, 2013


This is an animated gif of an extremely elated Arvind Mahankali moments after winning the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee by successfully spelling 'knaidel', a Yiddish form of unleavened dough dumpling. Afterwards, the 13-year old kicked over the podium and flipped off the audience before climbing onto the back of the second place winner and yelling, 'GIDDY UP, BRONCO!' Or he might have just kept standing there -- he's a loose cannon.

Thanks to PYY, who informed me nobody should ever be able to take a confetti shower IN THEIR HONOR with a straight face. It isn't right.

    He probably has an autism spectrum disorder like asberger's syndrome... so let's all make fun of him. Way to go, internet.

    orrrrr... just an awkward nerd who needs to get out from under his sheltering parents and experience life. Steal a car, smoke some weed.... kill a hooker. Y'know... stuff kids do.

    Wow! Doumit and Mauer had identical stat lines. It's like they're Twins.

    He probably was expecting an ass-beating from his dad, because he just said a jewish word that means 'dumpling'. Maybe the judges had him in their sights when they picked the word out as a descriptive noun for a certain joyless spelling bee contestant.
