In honor of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, this is a map created by Google Trends highlighting the most commonly searched 'How To Spell XXXXX Word' for each state. Honestly, I can't spell any of those without spell-check. Especially not diarrhea and I've probably tried typing it at least a thousand times. Sometimes I spell it so awfully that spell-check doesn't even give me any suggestions and I just let it go and now my doctor thinks I have something he's never even heard of before.

Thanks to Alpha Centurion, who I'm pretty sure is either a star or superhero.

    Considering the complex spelling of many towns in Wisconsin, I HIGHLY suspect this is BS.

    West Virginia and Connecticut are serious fans of Mary Poppins.

    Also, "beautiful," NY? Jim Carrey taught me how to spell that, and he dropped out of high school!

    I'm so glad Texas isn't a 1-5 letter state - BOOYAH!

    However, that's a lot of people needing to know how to spell diarrhea. Crosses "New Hampshire" off the "States To Visit" list.

    New Hampshire knows what's up.

    Wow, Hawaii went from Boutineer to People in like 5 months. What even happened there?

    Oh also, apparently no one in Illinois has figured out how to spell appreciate. Even I had to use spellcheck just now...

  • Munihausen

    Misleading headline. Indeed, the word most-often misspelled would be one for which people are not googling how to spell it. Not sure what the problem "beautiful" is.

  • Livingtool

    What is the deal with Wisconsin?

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    nothing wrong with Wisconsun. why?

  • antalicus

    That they don't know how to spell their own state's name...

  • infi_nitive

    Hawaii isn't setting the bar too high, are they?

  • The_Wretched

    FL should worry more about how to spell statute. They tend to drop that 3rd T more than other places.
