Google Trends recently tweeted a revealing map of America's most misspelled words by state.

North Dakota can't seem to get "dilemma" right, while South Dakota struggles with "college." "Sauerkraut" defeats Pennsylvanians, while Wisconsinites seem to have the most trouble with "Wisconsin."

Here in Tennessee, residents are given to rather chaotic spellings of the word "chaos." This will come as no surprise to Fly on the Wall readers, who will be familiar with the catchphrase "Get CHOAS a copy editor."

While MLGW's Twitter feed may have gotten a little testy from time to time, the Memphis utility company has been working overtime to serve those who lost power in last weekend's devastating storm.

Like the old saying goes, "If at first you don't succeed, remind everybody that the beer's getting warm."
