"NBC Olympics commentator Katie Couric managed to tick off plenty of people in the Netherlands when she attempted to explain the country’s dominance in speed skating. Couric called skating 'an important mode of transportation' in the city of Amsterdam.'As you all know, it has lots of canals that can freeze in the winters,' Couric said during the Opening Ceremony. 'So, for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other and also to have fun.'" [huffingtonpost.com]
Katie Couric has ruffled the Dutch;
Her knowledge of them isn't much.
They don't travel on skates
With their children and mates,
But have buses, bikes, autos, and such.
