In preparation for the upcoming Scripps Spelling Bee, Google Trends released a map detailing every state's most misspelled word. Here in Maine, given the lengthy winter and a particularly brutal flu season, it's hardly a surprise that that pneumonia tops the list. Google determined the most misspelled word by the number of searches that started with "how to spell...".

But while Maine's spelling error, other states have some explaining to do. For instance, Wisconsin's most misspelled word is...Wisconsin? Rhode Island apparently some real difficulty with the word liar. And apparently the jokes just write themselves, because people in South Dakota struggle to spell the word college.

Dive into the map here courtesy of Google Trends on Twitter and let's all work on misspelling another word in 2018 that has nothing to do with being sick. Deal?
