Drake Got Name-Dropped at the Scripps National Spelling Bee, Giving Him More Fodder for His Next Album

You never know where Drake will pop up next. Sometimes he’s at Sotheby’s soundtracking art, other times his name is being brought up at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Yes, Drake, of all people, was used as an example for the word bacchius, which, according to some confused judge, is how Drake will begin and end every verse on a song on his next mixtape. (According to Merriam-Webster, bacchius is “a metrical foot of three syllables, the first unstressed, the other two having either primary or intermediate stress.”) Naturally, the kid at the podium couldn’t help but chuckle at such an absurd idea. And of course, Drake posted the whole thing on Instagram. Whoever wrote that example better ask for credit when Drake tries to rap about it on Views From the 6 — in bacchius.
