What an outrage! Chimpy is banned from the annualFoot-In-Mouth competition! Dood is the Barry Bonds of malapropisms.
LONDON (Reuters) – Former England football manager Steve McClaren fought off tough competition from U.S. President George W. Bush to win a dreaded “Foot in Mouth” award on Tuesday from the Plain English campaign.
He was hailed for a supreme example of gobbledegook in talking about star player Wayne Rooney: “He is inexperienced but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through.”
George W. Bush came second for “All I can tell you is that when the governor calls, I answer his phone.”
Plain English Campaign spokesman Ben Beer told Reuters: “We thought it was a bit obvious to honour Bush as he comes up with them every day.”
