Google Trends recently released the most misspelled word in each state, and while some seem understandable, others are pretty head-scratching, including the Hawkeye State.

I mean, at least it's slightly harder to spell than Wisconsin's most misspelled word, right?

Some of the other states that jump out on this list are:

Alaska: Cheese

Georgia: Little

Kentucky: Again

Virginia: Prank

And my personal favorite?

West Virginia: West Virginia (How are you not able to spell your own state?)

According to the article, Google used a simple algorithm to find each state's most misspelled word.

Google Trends released an infographic that highlights the top spelling searches in each state, specifically looking at searches that began with "How do you spell...," and the results are amusing.
