Crowning achievement for opposable thumbs

Txt msgng.
A teenage girl who sends an average of 8,000 text messages a month has been crowned the texting champion of the United States.

Morgan Pozgar, 13, clinched the title with a quickfire error-free rendition of "supercalifragilisticexpialidoucious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious. If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious."

The teenager, from Claysburg, Pennsylvania, was awarded the top prize of $25,000 (£12,500) at the contest in New York after beating 250 competitors from across the country.
