An incorrect spelling of helmet, usually by southerners or rednecks. This error arises because the pronunciation of helmet with a southern accent is indistinct on the second syllable, and because people tend to write words according to local phonetics.
Mother: Bobby, don't you go riding your bike without wearing a helment!

Bobby: Jesus Christ mom, it's HELMET. I'm 5 and I know that.
