Autochthonous, A-u-t-o-c-h-t-h-o-n-o-u-s, Autochthonous

Congrats, new National Spelling Bee champ!

It means "indigenous," by the way. (Wonder how many people can spell indigenous, let alone, autochthonous).

David, surrounded by the media after his win, was asked whether he was a better speller than President Bush. He smiled and said, "I think so."

And what about all that cash?

"I might put it in a savings account or something," he said, adding, "I'll probably take a little and spend it at the mall."

Good boy. Go contribute to the economy. Consume, consume!

Makes me want to watch Spellbound again. If you haven't seen this gem of a documentary - go rent it, it's quite riveting.
