Map Of ‘America’s Most Misspelled Words’ Will Have You Shaking Your Head

Need help spelling Wisconsin? Maybe don?t ask someone who actually lives there.

A new spelling map released by Google this week shows each U.S. state?s most Googled word for its spelling, and yes, Wisconsin?s word is Wisconsin.

The map was released in honor of the 90th Annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, which began on Tuesday.

According to the map, which is based on data collected between January and April of this year, ?Beautiful? is the most commonly misspelled word across a number of states, frequently searched in California, Minnesota, Ohio and New York. 

Maine and Washington appeared to struggle with ?pneumonia,? while Arkansas and South Carolina pondered over ?Chihuahua,? Indiana and Delaware over ?hallelujah,? and Connecticut and West Virginia over ?supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, online reactions to the map involved a hefty amount of disbelief.

Fortunately, there were some Twitter users who were happy to offer tips on how to spell words like ?banana? and ?beautiful.? Others pitched words that they were surprised didn?t make the list.

Poodle ‘In Good Health’ After Found Locked Inside Discarded Suitcase

A poodle is lucky to be alive after a good Samaritan found him locked inside a suitcase discarded off a road in Canada over the weekend, authorities said.

The tiny animal, since named Donut, was heard crying inside the blue, hard-shelled luggage on Sunday by a dog walker in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS) said Monday.

?I heard this noise coming through the undergrowth,? Graham Barrett told CTV News. ?I saw this suitcase. ? I knew it had to be an animal. I knew something was trapped inside.?

Barrett said he called police for help after an unsuccessful attempt to open the suitcase by himself.

By the time authorities were able to break the case open, they estimated the dog, who was found lying in his own urine and feces, had been trapped inside for a total of three to six hours.

RAPS President and CEO Eyal Lichtmann couldn?t hide his disgust over the animal?s mistreatment. 

?It?s just horrendous,? he told HuffPost. ?Who puts a dog into a suitcase and throws it into the woods??

Anyone who decides they can no longer take care of an animal is urged by RAPS to bring the pet to its shelter. ?RAPS will gladly take the animal, provide it care and re-home the animal,? the group?s website states.

Amazingly, Donut is said to be doing extremely well, as seen in the video below released by RAPS. He?s described by the group as ?active, happy and friendly,? and ?in good health despite the traumatizing incident.?

The dog, estimated to be about 6 years old, was found without a microchip or any other identifier. He had been recently groomed, RAPS said.

An investigation is underway by the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a team with the British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to try to find whoever placed the poodle inside the suitcase, The Vancouver Sun reported.

The culprit could face up to five years in prison, a $75,000 fine and a lifetime ban on owning animals, CTV reported.

Barrett, who has two dogs of his own, hopes his adult daughter will be able to adopt the pooch, who he?d like to name Lucky because of his incredible survival.

?I think this would be a good fit for their family, and also for us, to know that he?s in a safe place,? he said.

So, Here’s Kathy Griffin Holding A Very Fake, Very Bloody Donald Trump Head

This feels like an ?America?s Next Top Model? challenge gone so horribly wrong. 

Kathy Griffin has made a career out of shocking her public by telling stories of Lindsay Lohan?s fire crotch and simulating oral sex with Anderson Cooper on CNN, but she took things to a whole new level with this controversial photo shoot.  

Shot by celebrity photographer and director Tyler Shields, the comedian stares the camera down in one photo, as she holds what resembles the bloody head of president Donald Trump.

?Kathy is all about pushing the limits and she went above and beyond on this one. Now lets just hope she stays out of jail,? a representative for Shields told HuffPost. 

In other (and considerably less gory) photos shot by Shields, Griffin poses by the pool in a revealing leather getup as a man holding a camera stands above her. 

According to New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali, Griffin claims that the image is an ?expression of art? inspired by Trump?s comments about former Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly having ?blood coming out of her eyes? and ?out of her ? wherever.?

We think it?s safe to say Griffin won?t be apologizing anytime soon. 

HuffPost has reached out to Griffin?s representatives and will update the post accordingly. This post was updated to include Ali?s tweets.
