In case you guys need a fun little distraction...

It's Friday afternoon. If you're like me, you're probably all restless 'cause you just don't wanna be at work anymore. Here are a couple little treats to help get you through those draggin' Friday afternoon hours...

As a former Spelling Bee queen, I find this totally funny. Although if it had happened to me, it wouldn't have been funny at all. I'd have raised holy hell. (Hat tip to the HALL MONITOR!)

Red Pen, Inc. reader DANNY found a funny little song for you guys. Oh my god, you guys, look at this YouTube clip! If you've ever been aggravated by crappy writing on forums and message boards, you will dig this.

Have a grrrrreat weekend, everyone!

I'm just going to assume you were going for ironic with "message boars". You were, right? :)

What? Huh? Typo? ME?!? Never. ;)

(Thanks for catching it!)

I'm a fellow Spelling Bee Queen, and in 6th grade, the trophy I received had a misspelled word on it. I kid you not: JAYCESS instead of JAYCEES! I kindly informed them of the error, and then refused their offer to correct it. That was more than 30 years ago and I still have that trophy on a shelf in my office.

Marie, that's too funny! :)

Glad to see another Spelling Bee Queen around here!
