Texting Championships??!!

I didn't know that they had such a thing. But I guess they do. THERE is a text message championship.

"On Saturday, 13-year-old Morgan Pozgar was crowned the first ever National Texting Champion, and awarded $25,000 for her blazing thumbs.

300 competitors vied for the prize, being tested for both speed and accuracy.

Contestants were shown phrases on overhead plasma screens and asked to type them on their handsets exactly as they appeared without typos or abbreviations.

Pozgar's winning phrase was, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocios! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious. If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious."

The only thing about this that surprised me was that they didn't televise it on ESPN right after the Spelling Bee Championships.
