SliPPery SloPe Poem #1

kids, ready for a sort of joke? and a reason

why you don't see many spelling bee

champions in jail? an item from a british

newspaper labeled "Fatal Slipp" reads

"Local police had a surprise Wednesday for a

suspect in the case of obscene letters. They

rounded up a dozen possibilities and had

each write the word 'surprise,' which the

writer of the letters had consistently spelled

with a double 'p.' They arrested their man!"

2021 Jacqueline Jackson
