So last night Barack Obama did one of those "oh shit" moments on live TV it seems. Whilst on the Jay Leno show and describing how bad is ten-pin bowling is he said,
"It’s like—it was like the Special Olympics, or something."Upon reading this I was reminded of the image below which has been around for many years on forums, bulletin boards and IRC. It is usually used in argument by someone not engaged in the argument itself as a kind of "STOP ALREADY! YOUR ARGUMENT IS BORING ME!" moment.
It is of coruse not funny really and pretty insulting, but given the President of the USA brougth the subject up I thought I would mention that he's by no means the first to mock the Special Olympics.
Note: If you think that image is in anyway shocking you've not been Goatse'd or Tubgirl'd on a forum. Whan that happens it takes things to a whole new level of wrong.
UPDATE: Fair point in the comments from Carlos: "A note to all readers...do not feel any need to further investigate goatse or tubgirl. At all. Forget that you ever heard the words. ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE AT WORK.....NSFW"
