"On national tv, I said to a guy interviewing me, 'That's a lot of bullshit.' It just slipped out. Everybody was looking at me funny. Then I realized. Whoah there. So I said in the microphone, 'Hey people. I'm sorry. I said 'bullshit'. It slipped out again.' I can't use big words to express myself. Educated people can do that. Me, I say 'bullshit.'"
