On World Dictionary Day 2015, HH put together this grotesquely difficult 50-word spelling bee. This year, things are just as tough... 

Click PLAY in the box below, and you’ll be given 30 three-letter words. Above them will be a nine-letter word with its middle three letters missing. All you have to do is pick the correct three-letter word to fill in the gap. So if the clue was DIS___TLE, you’d pick MAN to spell DISMANTLE. If the clue was TOM___ISH, you’d pick BOY to spell TOMBOYISH. Sound easy? Not with only three minutes on the clock it isn’t... 

Let us know how you many you can correctly match over on Twitter—and good luck!
