President Barack Obama mocked Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Monday night during the third and final presidential debate.
A meme is born….
Obama said during the final presidential debate.
“You mention the Navy, for example, and the fact that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets”
“Because the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
How do you feel about the debate? Know who you’re voting for?
From browsing the real time web tonight it looks like many many people don’t know how to spell the word “bayonet”
FYI, it comes from the French we spell it “baïonnette”
‘A bayonet (from French baïonnette) is a knife, sword, or spike-shaped weapon designed to fit in, on, over or underneath the muzzle of a rifle, musket or similar weapon, effectively turning the gun into a spear. In this regard, it is an ancillary close-quarter combat or last-resort weapon.
However, knife-shaped bayonets—when not fixed to a gun barrel—have long been utilized by soldiers in the field as general purpose cutting implements.’
‘Une baïonnette est une arme blanche conçue pour s’adapter au canon d’un fusil ou d’une arme similaire et destinée au combat rapproché.’
The image is so French to me and because both horsesandbayonets.com horseandbayonet.com domains are taken…I went French!
Horses is to Chevaux
Bayonets is to Baionnettes
