Hi. We're here to ruin your day and spring an unannounced spelling test upon you, like your teacher used to.

You know, that teacher you didn't like as much as all the others.

We've taken the most upvoted and added in a few of our own, to create a fiendish spelling test.

Take the quiz, below and let us know how well you do in the comments:
