  1. Smart Ass

    A painfully shy and awkward teenager, David Tidmarsh blushed during the final round of the National Spelling Bee competition, as he politely asked “Skanktacular. Could you use that in a sentence please?”

  2. Smart Ass

    The judge was nonpulsed, as he calmly replied:

    “After barely picking at the faute cuisine served for lunch at the bistrough du jour favored by her New Yorkie friends,
    and dealing with the drama of the snide remarks from the dipster maitre de and the lipster waiter, who were both commenting on the apecurian behavior of her lunch companion (her 24-year old tennis pro named Biff),
    the tramputante decided that late afternoon cocktails were in order, and suddenly became a harpish queue vulture, as she bitched about and then snatched a spot in line for happy hour at one of her old favorite watering holes,
    which unbeknownst to her, had taked a turn for the worse, and was now attempting to turn a profit as a slutffet, serving half-priced
    cosmopolitans to the skanktacular crowd, who arrived early, to enjoy 2 for 1 libations and wallow in their alcohol induced sherections,
    before the male strip review took center stage, later in the evening.”

  3. Smart Ass

    Still stalling for time, and trying not faint again, David wiped his brow and shuffled his feet before he asked:

    “Can you please provide the etymology for the word … SKANK – tack – YOO – luhr?”

    He articulated each syllable knowingly, thus dismaying his opponents, who knew that David was merely toying with them and prolonging their agony instead of spelling the word and moving on.

  4. Smart Ass

    Attempting to hide his impatience, the judge calmy replied:

    “Derived from the Latin phrase: spectaculum semeninis skanktaculurum.”

  5. Smart Ass

    The crowd was whispering with baited excitement, as the timer clock ticked down to the final seconds. David then smiled with pride as he firmly stated:


    The audience erupted with a loud ovation, David bowed slightly, ackowledging their approval, and then headed back to his seat.

  6. Smart Ass

    The world would be a better place if only Scripps used Davezilla’s Dictionary for the National Spelling Bee championship.
