   《耶鲁语录》编辑佛瑞德.R.夏皮罗说,佛罗里达大学学生安德鲁. 迈耶于9月17日的恳求话,以及他遭到泰瑟枪电击时的尖叫声,击败了谈话节目主持人“电台大嘴”唐.伊穆斯以失去工作为代价所做的种族诋毁,也击败了伊朗总统宣称伊朗没有同性恋的声明。

    夏皮罗说,迈耶这句话是普罗文化胜利的象征。两天之内,这句话成了“Google”搜索软件最热门的语句之一,事件录像也成了网络最热门视频之一。还被做成手机彩铃和印在体恤衫上。

    获选难忘语录排行榜第二名的,是今年8月代表南卡罗莱纳州参选“美国青少年小姐”的选美佳丽劳伦.厄普顿小姐婉转的回答,她说:

   “我个人认为美国有些人无法这样做,是因为我们国家有些人没有地图。我认为,我们的教育,如在南非,如在伊拉克,如在各个地方,我认为,他们应该,我们的教育,在美国这儿,应该帮助美国,或者应该帮助南非,应该帮助伊拉克和亚洲国家,这样,我们就能为我们自己建造我们的未来。”

    主持人对厄普顿的提问是,为什么有五分之一美国人不能在地图上指明美国位置。厄普顿小姐随即道歉说,她的回答不是很有道理。

    第三名,是伊朗总统艾哈迈迪.内贾德10月在纽约哥伦比亚大学的讲话:“伊朗不象你们国家,我们没有同性恋。”

    第四名,是谈话节目主持人“电台大嘴”唐.伊穆斯对罗格斯大学女子篮球队所下的评语:“那是一些卷毛娼妓。“

    伊穆斯的评语引起美国全国哗然,他在4月被CBS电台开除。但是,12月份,他转到城堡广播公司做电视广播

    其他上榜语录有:

    五、“我不记得。”---美国前司法部长阿尔韦托.冈萨雷斯就一批联邦检察官遭到革职,在国会听众会接受质询时的标准答案。

    六、“他(指美国共和党总统竞选人、纽约前市长鲁道夫·朱利亚尼)讲话,一句话中只有三样:名词、动词、9.11”---参议员约瑟夫. 拜登在民主党总统参选人辩论会上的说法。

    七、“我不想和支持度只有9%的人(指副总统迪克.切尼)斗嘴。”---参议院多数党领袖、民主党人哈里·里德的名言。

    八、“(我)上卫生间姿势很大。”---涉嫌勾搭男同性恋者的爱达荷州共和党参议员拉里.克雷格,对他在公共卫生间为什么脚会碰到一名便衣警察脚的解释。

    九、“我是说,这是美国出现的第一个口齿清晰、聪明纯洁、长相英俊的典型非洲裔美国人。我说,你是在讲故事吧,伙计!”----拜登对民主党总统竞选对手巴拉克奥巴马的描述。

"Don't Tase Me, Bro" tops '07 memorable quote list

Wed Dec 19, 2007 9:50am EST

 

By Arthur Spiegelman

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Don't Tase Me, Bro," a phrase that swept the nation after a U.S. college student used it seeking to stop campus police from throwing him out of a speech by Sen. John Kerry, was named Wednesday as the most memorable quote of 2007.

Fred R. Shapiro, the editor of the Yale Book of Quotations, said the plea made by University of Florida student Andrew Meyer on September 17, accompanied by Meyer's screams as he was tased, beat out the racial slur that cost shock jock Don Imus his job and the Iranian president's declaration that his country does not have homosexuals.

Shapiro said Meyer's quote was a symbol of pop culture success. Within two days it was one of the most popular phrases on Google and one of the most viewed videos. It also showed up on ringtones and T-shirts.

Second on Shapiro's list was this tortuous answer by Lauren Upton, the South Carolina contestant in the Miss Teen America contest in August:

"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and Iraq and everywhere like such as and I believe that they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us."

Upton had been asked why one-fifth of Americans are unable to locate the United States on a map and later apologized for her answer not making a lot of sense.

Third was Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's October comment at Columbia University in New York, "In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."

Shock jock Don Imus comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team: "That's some nappy-headed hos there," was fourth.

Imus created a national outcry and lost his job at CBS radio in April, but returned to the airwaves in December with Citadel Broadcasting.

Other phrases on the list:

5. "I don't recall." -- Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' repeated response to questioning at a congressional hearing about the firing of U.S. attorneys.

6. "There's only three things he (Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani) mentions in a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11." -- Sen. Joseph Biden, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate.

7. "I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with somebody (Vice President Dick Cheney) who has a 9 percent approval rating." -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat.

8. "(I have) a wide stance when going to the bathroom." -- Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig's explanation of why his foot touched that of an undercover policeman in a men's room.

9. "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man." -- Biden describing rival Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

10. "I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history." -- Former President Jimmy Carter in an interview in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper.
