Blessed Bee

Headline: Nuns to Face Librarians in Spelling Bee

It’s hard to tell which group would have the Holier Than Thou attitude with this competition.

Will the librarians be able to spell more than just Shhh? It seems they’d only know the first letter of a word anyway. Would the judges tire of straining to hear their hushed response?

I would hate to practice with the nuns for something like this. Do they have to kneel on rice in the corner if they misspell a word? Are their knuckles raw from ruler smacks?

Picture the beginning of the program. The nuns huddled in a circle with the Mother Superior yelling - Knute Rockne style - “Our Lady of Victory” and the rest chiming in, “PRAY FOR US!”

Upon witnessing a motivated start like that, all the librarians could do at that point is hang their head in defeat and whisper shhh*t.

I went to a Catholic high school. Our librarians WERE nuns. Makes you wonder where their allegiance would lie in such a contest. Do they side with Jesus or the Dewey Decimal system. Hmmmmmm.

mine too. :) Guess they must discuss it with the other members of the coven, I mean, convent.

Are you *serious*? What a contest.

Me. I'll bet on the librarians. Nuns may have God and kneeling on rice on their side, but librarians are sticklers for detail.

Never, ever, ever, play trivial pursuit with a Librarian. Especially a reference librarian.

I don't actually know any librarians, but I'll remember not to engage in a board game with one if the situation should arise. :)

One things for sure: The nuns will have the snazzier uniforms.
