The Forth of July [sic]

Just back from a lunch of barbecue ribs at Alan's house, where we watched Joey Chestnut break the world record for hot dog-eating with 66 in 12 minutes, beating Kobayashi's 63 at the annual Coney Island competition. Then we watched a rerun of the National Spelling Bee, which I thought relied too heavily on the announcer's ability to enunciate. How do I have a chance of spelling "pelorus" if I hear "halorice"?
