Honoring a hometown youngster who made it to the National Spelling Bee is a nice idea. Pity her name was misspelled.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

But that’s exactly what happened in Amarillo, Texas, home of 14-year-old Caitlin Campbell.

A billboard went up downtown congratulating her for making the city proud by becoming one of 13 finalists.

Unfortunately, the “P” is missing from Campbell, whose name is spelled like the soup.

The billboard company, which donated the space, plans to fix it.
