I’m sure you caught the Spelling Bee this weekend, right? No, I didn’t either. But, I did see the clip of the eventual winner, Sameer Mishra, getting the word “numnah” and thinking it was “numbnut.” You can’t help but laugh, as it really did sound like numbnut to me. What’s wrong with numbnut? It’s a proper english word, see:
A dumbass. A person of questionable intelligence, usually a male for obvious reasons. If reason is not obvious, perhaps you are a numbnut. The numbnut tried to run away, but he failed to realize his shoes were tied together.
(Umm – there’s a lesson and tie-in here somewhere – although I’m not exactly sure what it is.)
Long live the numbnut!
