Funny feature in the Washington Post
about a National Spelling Bee-related exercise by Google to determine the word on which spelling help was most sought in the 50 states.

Arkansas's most requested spelling?

Chihuahua.

Commented the Post article:

For example, were users in Arkansas watching old Taco Bell commercials or searching for an indoor pup when they wanted to know how to spell “Chihuahua”? And was there a rush to the zoo in Louisiana, because the “giraffe” certainly isn’t native to the area?
Noted: These were small samples, only 8 to 10 requests for spelling of the same word in Arkansas, for example.

Google managed to misspell a word in its first posting of a graphic to accompany the article.
