danquayle2On 15 June 1992, US vice president Dan Quayle instructed a student to spell ‘potato’ by adding an ‘e’ to the end during a spelling bee arranged as a photo opportunity.

Quayle becomes notorious for his foot-in-mouth quotes such as; “If we don’t succeed we run the risk of failure” and “a low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls”.
