“Because of COVID-19 for the first time since 1945 the National Spelling Bee is cancil… cancul…”

The National Spelling Bee had been held every year since 1945. In 2020, however, the coronavirus caused the spelling bee to be canceled, or cancelled.

“C-A-N-C-E-L-E-D: The National Spelling Bee has been called off for the first time since 1945” was posted on Twitter by AP Sports on April 21, 2020. “Because of Covid for the first time since 1945 the National Spelling Bee is cancil… cancul… cansel… it’s been called off” was posted on Twitter by Kyle Carrier on May 11, 2020. The spelling joke has been printed on several images.
