I couldn’t quite believe it, but there’s video to prove it. At least at the moment; the web is a transitory thing.
Puts me in mind of another joke. (My apologies to any friends who have strong feelings about Illinois.)
Champ Clark loves to tell of how in the heat of a debate Congressman Johnson of Indiana called an Illinois representative a jackass. The expression was unparliamentary, and in retraction Johnson said:
“While I withdraw the unfortunate word, Mr. Speaker, I must insist that the gentleman from Illinois is out of order.”
“How am I out of order?” yelled the man from Illinois.
“Probably a veterinary surgeon could tell you,” answered Johnson, and that was parliamentary enough to stay on the record.
