Foot & Mouth Disease
Have you ever gotten your foot in your mouth? I do it quite regularly. All of us say things that we regret later, but here are some of the classics...
** "Dewey is sure to be elected president, Truman doesn't have a prayer"
--Drew Pearson, October 14, 1948
** "I would like to suggest that Ronald Reagan is politically dead"
--Tom Pettit, NBC Correspondent, January, 1980
** "I'm sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don't know how to use the English language"
--Editor of the San Francisco Examiner, 1889
** "Gone with the Wind is going to be the biggest flop in Hollywood history. I'm just glad it'll be Clark Gable who's falling flat on his face and not Garry Cooper"
--Garry Cooper, after turning down the role of Rhett Butler, 1938
** "I think there is a world market for about five computers"
--Thomas J. Watson, Chairman of IBM, 1943
** "Man will not fly for 50 years"
--Wilbur Wright, 1901
** (Babe) Ruth made a great mistake when he gave up pitching. Working once a week, he might have lasted a long time and become a great star"
--Tris Speaker, 1921
Aren't you glad that God forgives the "dumb" things we say and do?
