US President Vomits on Japanese Prime Minister

The American President George W. Bush will long be remembered for his public goofs. One must note that his father, George H. W. Bush, was a notable role model: on January 8th 1992, while on a presidential tour of Japan, vomited on the Japanese Prime Minister Miyazawa Kiichi before fainting at an official dinner.

The Japanese coined the word "busshu - suru" meaning to vomit in public in an embarrassing manner as a result of this event.
