THIS WEEK IS THE SCRIPPS NATIONAL Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., and in the competition’s honor, Vocativ teamed up with Google Trends to see what the most Googled spellings of words were in each state. Delaware (“Paronychia”) either has the most sophisticated spellers, or has some sort of foot fungus epidemic going on, and Utah has the most hilariously provincial word: “Awnry.”
