Dead Letter Office

Fox sportscaster Joe Buck has signed on as the MC for a spelling bee in St. Louis, the "Emerson Kidsmart Back 2 School 2008 Celebrity Spelling Bee," and let's hope the first word on the agenda is "to."

I'll help you kids out here: "Unctuous" is spelled U-N-C-T-U-O-U-S.

I once saw New York magazine critic John Simon participate in a downtown semi-celebrity spelling bee (Louis Theroux won it), and his first word was "abysmal."

I never knew there were so many celebrity spelling bees. It makes me wish I was a celebrity. I can spell like nobody's business.
