    That final quote is a classic.

    He just wasn't cut out to read idiot boards was he!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    There is another one you have missed but that is no surprise.
    I doubt many heard it as there was a deliberate media cover up.
    Quite interesting in light of the current news regarding one of the royal family in the UK.

    He was at a school in the UK I think, and talking about our friends and allies against the war on terror, Pakistan.
    Unfortunately for him, he used the wrong term to describe people from that country.
    An aid immediately whispered into his ear and he then corrected himself.

    I only saw it reported on chanel 5 here and even then it only appeared to have been repeated less than a handfull of times.
