Burns: Well, did you meet Larry?
Man: Oh, yes. He made light of my weight problem, then suggested my motto be "semper fudge." At that point, he told me to 'relax'.
Burns: How were his test scores?
Woman: Let's just say this: he spelled "Yale" with a six.
Burns: I see. Well, I -- ooh, you know, I just remembered, it's time for my annual donation. I wonder

The idea was to portray Gore as a dry, stuffy intellectual out of touch with the American people, whilst ol' George, well he's not that bright, but his heart's in the right place and that's what really matters. He's continued to use this motif throughout his career- his speeches are the vocal equivalent of reception building blocks. Look at the colours, children, the colours!
