Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

THE PASTA PATCH

SCREW UP ON AIR PROMPTS FUNNY PHOTO

  • Print

Okay, I did screw it up. In fairness, however, it was a pretty tough word to pronounce.

About 6:45 Thursday morning we're cruising into the home stretch of Live at Daybreak, and I'm reading a story about a new medical patch that doctors believe may help Parkinson's patients.

The name of the active ingredient in the drug is rotigotine. Rotigotine? How do you pronounce that?

As it turns out, it's pronounced ro-TIG-o-teen. I saw the word... and called it, rigatoni... you know, like the pasta.

That prompted snickers and laughs and thoughts of the Pasta Patch.

It also prompted Chris from Cedarburg to send in the above photo, and the message below.

"There’s a dire need for your pasta patch, considering the number of dangerously underweight individuals in this country.  I salute you, sir."

Good stuff, Chris.
