These are America's most misspelled words

In honor of the 90th Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, Google Trends has tweeted out a map showing each state's most frequently Googled word to ask, "how to spell ___?"

We don't know what's up with D.C., but "ninety" is the most frequently Googled word to check its spelling in the District. But don't worry D.C., apparently Google doesn't know how to spell the word "ninety" either! Its original tweet had the word misspelled.

See original tweet below:

Now it's time to shame the rest of the DMV: Virginia doesn't seem to know how to spell "delicious" and Maryland is having a bit of trouble with the word "special." Thank goodness for Google and spellcheck!

We sure hope that Seattle residents stay far away from Maine, Michigan, and Alabama residents because they all are wondering how to spell Pneumonia... I wonder why??
