Have you ever fallen victim to the horrific spelling errors of a coffee shop barista? Jimmy Kimmel clearly has.

In honor of National Coffee Day on Monday, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host pitted three coffee makers against each other to find out if they really know how to spell customers’ names.

“You know at one point or another, most everyone who drinks it has had the misfortune of having their name spelled wrong on a coffee cup,” Kimmel said. “I have a friend named Joe whose name they spelled wrong — they spelled it Jo. And not only is his name Joe, they call coffee ‘joe.’” It’s the one name you should know how to spell.”

So, how did the challengers fare?

The three competitors — all pulled from different coffee shops around the studio’s neighborhood — were first given softball names like Michael and Phyllis, before moving on to trickier ones, like Björk and Liberace.

Things looked promising until the third round: Names like Jake Gyllenhaal, Zach Galifianakis and  Game of Thrones‘s Khaleesi threw the baristas into a mangled-name spiral.

Michael Phelps Arrested for DUI: Report

09/30/2014 AT 12:25 PM EDT

Olympic champion Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI in Baltimore early Tuesday morning, according to multiple reports.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the celebrated gold medalist, 29, was pulled over around 1:40 a.m. for going 84 mph in a 45 mph zone just outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel in his white Range Rover.

An officer followed him through the tunnel and pulled him over. He then failed a field sobriety test.

“Mr. Phelps … was unable to perform satisfactorily a series of standard field sobriety tests,” police said in a statement, adding that he was cooperative.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ, which first reported the news, that Phelps’s blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit. He was reportedly charged with driving under the influence, excessive speeding and crossing lane lines.

The site reports that Phelps was taken to a local police station and booked for DUI before being released.

This is Phelps’s second DUI arrest. The 22-time Olympic medalist was also busted for DUI in 2004 at age 19.

“I made a mistake,” he said shortly after his initial arrest. “Getting in a car with anything to drink is wrong, dangerous and unacceptable. I’m 19 but was taught no matter how old you are, you should always take responsibility for your actions, which I will do.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt: Autumn Is Walking

Jennifer Love Hewitt: Autumn Is Walking

During a Monday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, actress Jennifer Love Hewitt opened up about her recent marriage to Brian Hallisay and their daughter Autumn, 10 months.

“I like to just do it all at once,” the Client List actress, 35, joked about getting married and having a baby within a matter of days. “Shake it up!”

Speaking of her baby girl, the proud mama gushed about her lil’ “overachiever.”

“She smiles. She’s walking. She’s waddling like a little penguin. It’s great,” the actress shared. “She’s an overachiever, which is awesome. Just like me!”

That said, the new mom admits it’s “terrifying” to see her daughter starting to walk.

“I’m just trying to move furniture and dodge things…There are gates everywhere, which I constantly trip over. I have bruises everywhere,” she said.

The Party of Five alum went on to say that people were rude during her first pregnancy.

“People are mean to you!” she said. “You’re like, ‘I’m a pregnant lady. You can’t be mean to me,’ and they’re like, ‘Well, then tell us what your baby is!’ and I’m like, ‘I don’t know.’ And then they guess, which is insulting for the woman because they’re like, ‘Oh, well, you’re really carrying in the backside.’ I’m like, ‘I have been carrying in the backside since I was 15. This is not pregnancy—it’s just who I am!’ Or they’re like, ‘It’s really in your boobs!’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, it’s been there, too, since I was 15.’ They say the dumbest things…I just avoided people most of my pregnancy and after. And I was happy!”

She went on to gush about her supportive new husband.

“He should be a male doula, my husband,” the new mom shared. “He was a rock. He was awesome. He was really good at it. He was very solid, very concentrated. I was really worried that I was gonna get [worrisome reactions]…But he was just like, ‘Babe, this is great. I am so proud of you right now. This is awesome. You look beautiful.’ He said all of the right things. It was amazing. I was really proud of him.”

Kimmel then joked: “Do you think he was acting or he meant it? Because I know he’s an actor.”

“He’s that guy anyway, so he’s impressive in that way, but he was great,” she replied. “I packed snacks for him! This is the thing, too: If you are in labor, feed your husband, and they’re wonderful. They can’t be hungry! You need them. If he passed out or if something bad happened out of being ‘hangry,’ then I don’t get what I need, which is my rock. And so I had pudding for him and snack bars. It was great.”
