Against your current peer group, would you finish higher in a spelling bee competition or a talent show?

04/06/12 4:09 pm

Both. Ive won spelling tests and my current peer group only pays to make thier children talented so that people will ignore the fact that they are talentless bitches.

04/05/12 8:45 pm

I would fail at spelling, and I don't have any talents... Well, sh*t.

I answered spelling though...

I was one round away from the National Spelling Bee last year.. so probably spelling bee! but I am into theater as well. So either way.

04/05/12 7:20 pm

I finished 8th at the Mid-South Spelling Bee this year, so obviously spelling bee.

Well I'm pretty smart and can spell well, but I'm also a good singer. So I don't know.

04/05/12 7:11 pm

04/05/12 6:19 pm

IM TERRIBLE AT SPELLING! I will take a talent show any day! im really funny so i will do comedy, DUHH

04/05/12 3:57 pm

Plus I've participated in both and won both. Like I said, it's a toss up.

04/05/12 3:55 pm

I am an honor student and have been playing piano for eight years. I would probably do better in both so I just chose one. I have some pretty smart and talented friends though so it's a toss up.

04/05/12 3:44 pm

I am an honor student and got a lead In the school musical. I had to go with spelling bee because my friends are all awesome singers!

04/05/12 2:00 pm

Well I happen to be a very talented singer and won the talent show at my high school. I'm also an excellent speller but I'd have to go with a talent show.

I'm really smart, but I couldn't spell "onion" until I was 14. Actually, it's still pretty difficult to spell simple words, but I'm more talented and not a great speller.

When I was in elementary school and we had spelling tests I could never get a 100% no matter how hard I tried and studied. I'm not stupid. Just a bad speller. I'm way better at dancing. :)

2 TIME ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPELLING BEE CHAMP! Notice how much enthusiasm was expressed. Yes, one my biggest accomplishments. Sad? Yes. Pathetic? Yes. Do I take pride in it? Absolutely.

04/05/12 1:13 pm

depends on what talent you are looking at...I have a great talent for causing trouble

I would do well in both, I did talent show because I stumble on my words a lot and i wouldn't be able to spell large words in front of a crowd

I would suck at a Spelling Bee because I have a problem with spelling words out verbally, I'm pretty good at spelling when I just have to write the word down. Probably talent show, even though I don't have any major talents.
I'm a fairly good at drawing and artistic type of stuff.

You're reading the post of a past grade-school spelling bee third place winner. :)

04/05/12 11:38 am

04/05/12 10:44 am

Really both for me...I can sing and spell pretty well.

04/05/12 8:36 am

What if I would win in both . . . ?

04/05/12 8:22 am

I have terrible punctuation, and my sentence structure is atrocious. Spelling is eh. But when I go on Facebook, It makes me look like a Harvard grad. Do schools or parents even care anymore?
