Some more `Bushisms` in Sydney

The run-up to the annual APEC summit in Sydney saw its humorous moments as American President George Bush delivered his speech.

The American President pronounced OPEC instead of APEC, but drawing laughter from the crowds, Mr Bush remained unfazed.

That wasn't the end of his confusion – later on he thanked Austrian, not Australian, troops in Iraq.

It's not the first time the American President has confused words in speeches. That's why he often jokes about his habit of mangling the English language.

Concluding his speech, Mr Bush drew more laughter as he nearly exited through the wrong door, but was steered away by the Australian Prime Minister.
