The Scripps National Spelling Bee finals just happened. Google decided it was a good excuse to figure out the words that this country CAN'T spell.

They analyzed millions of searches to figure out the word that people in every state have the most trouble spelling.

More states struggle with "desert" than any other word. The dry land only has one "s."  If you add a second one, it becomes dessert and it's delicious.  It's the most misspelled word in California, Connecticut, Idaho, and Indiana.

But what's the word that trips up Mainers the most?


Oh that one gets me all the time. In Ohio, the most misspelled word is banana. Banana!!

The one that made me giggle was Massachusetts. The most misspelled word there is...Massachusetts!  Hysterical.
