A group of Texas A&M Aggies and a group of Harvard students had been deadlocked in a spelling bee for an entire week.
At the end of the contest the score was tied and the judges had a dilemma.
They told the contestants that each group was to quickly come up with a poem using the word 'Timbuktu.' Well the Aggiess started laughing the minute the word was uttered but Harvard just smiled and prepared their short rhyme.
One Harvard student stood up and for his group recited 'Through the desert all night we ride on camels walking two by two, Destination Timbuktu.' Well the crowd politely applauded - they knew the Aggies couldnt beat that and the Aggies just continued laughing throughout the whole process.
One Aggie stopped giggling long enough to stand and read the team's effort.
He said, 'Tim and I, a hunting went, we came upon three women in a tent.
Since they were three and we were two, I buk one and Timbuktu!'
