    This is all part of a subversive American plot where we can once again regain dominance at the Spelling Bee 🙂

    Amit, Sri, Sonali and Aseem, thank you for sharing my joke. Just to remove all doubts, I want to make sure you realize how Share works in Facebook. My guess is you wanted to share this post with all your FB friends. In reality, that is not what will happen. FB will not let a Share go out to anybody other than the original intended audience of the post writer. If my posts were visible to the world, then indeed you share would have reached all your FB friends. But since, like most people, my posts are visible only to my friends, you Share will only go to those folks that are your FB friends AND my FB friends (who would have gotten it anyways from my original post).

    I am not sure if there is an elegant way to get around this. However, since I write my content in my blogsite (rajibroy dot com) which is then syndicated to FB, you can always post the link on your FB – it will have the same effect. The link for this particular post was http://www.rajibroy.com/?p=8444

    Did you see the spelling of the last names for the two kids that won? After learning to spell their own last names, everything else in spelling life would be easy…

    I saw a joke somewhere to that effect, Mark. Sometimes, when I go to a new Starbucks and they ask my name I say “Srirangachari Venkatachalam Narayanmurthy. They also call me Roy” 🙂

    Surya, knowing Indians, we will want a slight reduction in price from the spellcheck on version 🙂
