    Hear Bush pronounce Ubuntu

    In connection with the Boston Celtics.

    It's about 1.30 from the end. There doesn't seem to be any way to fast-forward.

    "I appreciate very much the use of the word 'Ubuntu,'" Bush said during his often humorous speech. "I don't know if you know what that's talking about here. Probably most people outside of Boston don't. It is an African word for unity that the [Celtics] declared when they broke from the huddle. I've been looking forward to saying that with a Texas accent:

    "U-bun-tu . . . yeah," Bush said to laughter and applause.

    I wouldn't expect him to know what Ubuntu the OS was.. I betcha he can't even get onto the Internet to view the White House's webpage.

    First you have Bush, who calls it "The Google" and Ted Stevens famous "The Internet isn't a dump truck, it's a series of tubes".
    Dihydrogen Monoxide has killed more people this year due to overdose than murder, yet we do nothing about it..

    Surprisingly he does pronounce it right, I was expecting something more like "Yah bone toe"
