The Foot In Mouth Award

This is given, appropriately, to a public figure who has said something completely baffling. It’s awarded every year by the British Plain English Campaign. Winners:
• “I know who I am. No one else knows who I am. If I was a giraffe and somebody said I was a snake, I’d think ‘No, actually I am a giraffe.’” –Richard Gere
• “I love England, especially the food. There’s nothing I like more than a lovely bowl of pasta.” –Naomi Campbell
• “Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.” – Donald Rumsfeld
• “When it comes to words I have a uniqueness that I find almost impossible in terms of art - and it’s my words that actually make my art quite unique.” – Artist Tracey Emin
