  • This Joburg guy’s spelling fail on Expresso Show was glorious [pic]
    Posted by on Feb 21st, 2013

    So this morning i tuned into the Expresso Show on SABC 3 and managed to catch a live call-in contest they were running where you could win some prizes for spelling a word correctly. The first caller  failed and spelled ‘gazebo’ as ‘gisebo’ (pronounced jizzebo?), but next up was Johannesburg’s Marcin who phoned in and was asked to spell ‘equator’.

    The Expresso Show presenters wrote down each letter as he slowly pronounced them in an Afrikaans accent (i think)…and what he came up with was absolutely glorious.

    South Africa please stand up and give a solid slow clap for your new spelling champion. I wish i had the video footage of that.

    Beautiful Marcin.

    Outf**kingstanding chap.

    I woulda totally given you the prize.

    UPDATE: there’s video of our new spelling champions in action! Skip to the 1.50 mark to get to the contestants live on air.
