A politician becomes the butt (ha ha) of jokes

He mistook the word ‘suppository’ (medical preparation you stick up your bottom) for ‘repository’. And he is a native English speaker 🙂 Listen to the little giggles from the audience after he says it. Note that they were only little giggles – people were probably polite enough to ignore it. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes when you speak – it could always be worse!
