Spelling, mr. President ? September 26, 2007Posted by dorigo in humor, language, news, politics.
George W. Bush may not be the smartest person in the United States, but until today one could hope he was at least able to learn a few toponyms and the name of leaders of foreign countries. I know some five-year-olds that can, but hey, they did not have the time to waste their brains with alcohol yet.
Well, no hope is left after the disclosure by mistake of the hardcopy of his speech at the United Nations, which his aides wrote with capitalized inserts to help him pronounce correctly some words he is not familiar with. Here is an image of a page of his personal copy of the speech:
Here are a few of the suggestions for George (source):
- Sarkozy [sar-KO-zee]
- Kyrgyzstan [KEYR-geez-stan]
- Harare [hah-RAR-ray]
- Mauritania [moor-EH-tain-ee-a]
- Khartoum [car- TOOM]
- Mugabe [moo-GAH-bee]
- Caracas [kah-RAH-kus]
Read with me, George: vaf – fan – KOOLOW !
