Pharaoh is, to my mind, the perfect spelling bee word. Everyone knows what a pharaoh is, right? But are you sure you know how to spell it?
During one of the rounds of the 2006 Bee, the word "pharaoh" instantly eliminated all but one team, to the good-natured chagrin of the competitors.
As we compile this year's list, we will be looking for more words like pharaoh.
