Waffles, Anyone? LOL

During a town hall meeting in Illinois, Obama thanked the “Waffles” family for hosting his visit. There’s just one problem: the name of the family company hosting Obama is Wyffels Hybrids Inc. The crowd quickly corrected Obama and he called himself “stupid” before blaming the mistake on not yet having lunch.

I have never made a mistake while speaking and pronounced any word wrong, he should be perfect like me.

My name is Rosemary and people call me RosemarIE all the time, even when my name is on a piece of paper in front of them (ie at the doctor) - I don't see why it's a huge deal.

I was once a receptionist at a business called "beverage bistro". I once answered the phone and said "beverage beefstroke."

It wasn't written on his teleprompter now, ima! How dare we make light of that? Either that, or the batteries went dead in the teleprompter at that moment.
