Learn German (Part II)

We've already seen how learning German endeared political candidate Tom Umberg to our household. And today, what were the two words that decided last night's National Spelling Bee?

Ursprache and weltschmerz.

The loser fell by attempting to spell weltschmerz with an initial 'v'. Basic German instruction could have saved her from embarassing defeat! German — learn it today! You never know when it'll come in handy!
