Karl, aka themantuk, check the OED if you like, same result. The true morons are those of you who thought it was a slip up. Good day.

Turtlebone, to quote Webster's dictionary in an attempt to prove a point of the English Language is Folly. The only correct English dictionary is the OED (Oxford English Dictionary), this is not to say you are wrong simply that your comments might bear closer scrutiny from someone actually willing to check the oED if the source were more reliable. My problem with this is that Webster was American and anyone of a nationality that counts English as it's national language whether officially or not, that can neither speak or write the language correctly should never be allowed to produce a dictionary. As and addendum, even if your comment does prove correct the slip up still stands because Bush is so moronic that he couldn't possibly have known of that particular entry in the dictionary.
