You're A Mo-Fo!

You don't feel insulted, do you?

Of course not! Who in the world would feel insulted after being called a Mo-Fo?

Leave it to Texas Governor Rick Perry to explain that one for us.

Remember when he signed anti-gay marriage legislation in a church?

Well, this time he showed his true colors on TV...

Watch the video.

Gov. Perry caught in embarrassing faux pas with open microphone

Gov. Perry admits he said something embarrassing while his microphone was still on, but he says it was not meant as an insult.

By Ted Oberg

We were trying to get the governor to give us details about his education plan. He's releasing it today, and he didn't want to give out details a day early.

"You'll have to wait until tomorrow. I hate to let you guys in on it and no one else," Gov. Perry insisted.

So we said goodbye, thank you and thought the interview was over.

"You're welcome," Gov. Perry signed off. "So long."

Our questions were not recorded on tape, but in saying goodbye I told the governor, "Try as I may, Governor, I guess I can't win this one."

Eleven seconds after he said goodbye, the camera crew was getting ready for the next interview with another station. That's when Gov. Perry repeated what he thought I'd said, and added a few words of his own with his microphone on and tape still rolling.

"Try as I may, Governor, I'm not going to wait that long," Gov. Perry said. "Adios, Mofo."

Those last words aren't exactly part of the seven dirty words, but it isn't something you want to say to your mother or use in good company. Tuesday morning, Governor Perry called me personally. He apologized and said his comment wasn't directed at us. LINK

From The Urban Dictionary...

1. mo-fo
short for mother-fucker
"damn ur mums a mo-fo!"

2. Mo-fo
The way a cockbite, or other wimpy-type person would say MOTHER FUCKER. See word motherfucker.
Get back here with my computer you mo-fo!

3. Mo-Fo
Short for mother fucker
You stupid Mo-Fo

And the final Jeopardy answer is...

The last time you called someone a Mo-Fo
without intending it as an insult.

(Cue the Jeopardy theme song!)

Time's up. Pens down.

When is Never, Alex?

Perry's explanation might work on Planet OH RIGHT SURE...

And in some parts of my home state, Texas...

But my mother sure as hell wouldn't like it!

Would yours?
