Scotty McWhatshisname, and that steel trap of a memory

Via Michael J. Sticking, at least Scotty didn't call him Prime Minister Poutine.

Kind of reminds me of the time the Prime Minister went to an acid rain conference in Washington D.C. where Senator Claireborne Pell of Rhode Island kept referring to Brian Mulroney as "Muldoon".

In fact, at the Shamrock Summit, in Quebec City in the Spring of 1985, Ronald Raygun, then US President, said of Mulroney, "My old friend, Byron Muldoon".

Way to go, Scotty! Now we know why Bobby Goldsboro wrote a song about you. "BRLFQ spells mom and dad".
