"At one point or another most everyone who drinks coffee has had their name spelled wrong on a coffee cup," so begins Jimmy Kimmel's latest segment: "the first — and probably the last — Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Barista Spelling Bee." In honor of national coffee day, baristas from Peet's, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and a local shop were called in to spell names both common and not-so-common. It's easy-breezy until the celebrity names start coming in. When Kimmel says "Zach Galifianakis," the barista takes a long breath and gives it her best shot.
