Welcome to Wired News' 2006 Foot-in-Mouth Awards program. You, the readers,
have sent us your picks for the lamest quotes from or about the world of
technology during this eventful year. We have selected the "best" of those
and present them to you now.

Leading off with a stupid quote from President Bush might seem a little too
easy, perhaps unfair, a bit like stealing candy from a blind kid or
something. But in a year chockablock with moronic quips, obtuse
observations and mind-boggling inanities, you still have to put Dubya front
and center. He is, after all, the most powerful man in the world.

"One of the things I've learned on the Google is to pull up maps. It's very
interesting to see -- I've forgotten the name of the program -- but you get
the satellite, and you can -- like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It
reminds me of where I wanna be sometimes."

- - Bush, asked during an interview with CNBC if he ever googled anybody.
