This video from 1992 in the USA says Vice President Dan Quayle attempts to correct a student spelling the word “potato”.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
English test launch mocked for misspelling language
Saturday 23rd January 2016
An item on the Home Office website explaining new regulations on English language requirements for those applying for family visas spelled the word language as “langauge.”
This reminds me of United States former Vice President Dan Quayle, who told school children they should spell potato ‘potatoe’.
