Default Bob Hope quote

What could be wrong with "Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbequed?" It works, it fits, but I'm told to go back because of an error. Don't get it.

all i can suggest is going over it letter by letter to make sure you have what you think you have--i've often found typos that i missed.

I'm thinking the the "q" in barbeque should be a "c".

If I recall the comments correctly, a lot of people put in q instead of c the first time.

Thanks, guys. Bet that's it. When the quote cycles around again I'll try to remember the C.

if it was within the last 24 hours, you can still catch it in "recent games", if you don't mind slowing your average time.

Sounds more like a WC Fields quote to me.

I can't tell you how many times I've used that darn "Q" on that quote. I THINK I've finally got it firmly in mind, but only time will tell.
