You misspelled "Dan Quayle".

D'oh! That's what comes of relying on memory, not Google.

Quote:
Enter William Figueroa, 12, a sixth-grader from the Mott School in the South Ward who had been bused to Munoz Rivera to take part in the vice presidential event.

Figueroa knew how to spell potato, and he wrote it in a legible script on the blackboard when Quayle announced his word for the spelling bee.

Quayle looked at the blackboard, then at his contest card, and gently and quietly told the boy, "You’re close, but you left a little something off. The e on the end.

"So William, against his better judgment and trying to be polite, added an e’’ and won applause for it from those assembled in the classroom, including Mayor Doug Palmer, Quayle wrote.

The misspelling wasn’t mentioned until the end of the press conference afterward, when one reporter asked Quayle, "How do you spell potato?’’

"I gave him a puzzled look, and then the press started laughing. It wasn’t until that moment that I realized anything was wrong,’’ Quayle wrote.


I did see it on the TV news, but it doesn't seem to have made to the interweb.

Are you sure it was Jimmy Carter? I thought it was Dan Quayle. Seems to me there were a lot of jokes at his expense over that faux pas.

Well, since this is the thread for it:

While Potatoe isn't correct, potatoes is. It has an e when used in the plural form.

that's because it was dan quayle (vp under george bush snr), not jimmy carter

as this happened while campaigning, his opponents then printed buttons saying 'BUSH/QUAYLE - JUST SAY NOE'

I am under the impression, over the last several administrations, acutely aware that VPs are not picked except for the fact they are necessary. Too often they seem to be lacking in some facet. Lately,Gore (thinks very highly of himslef and false claims (creation of the internet and global warming, it's freaking cold where I am!) Cheney was a very blunt and controlling guy (like FDR and Truman), Biden...I am still not sure why he is where he is, but enough of politique.

Still not sure about OP, can some one nutshell it for me? Doomsday wasn't it? 2012? Again, I think the Mayans just ran out of room on the tablet. It was only so big. Thatas why the Almanac's perpetual calendar is so nice it keeps going. Has anyone noticed a stop in the perpetual calendar around 2012...no!

Is that mistletoe Ima? Wink

Sounds familiar, in our case they get into the big chair and wreak havoc, whilst claiming they can't see a thing! Laughing
