  1. The “Foot in Mouth” award (second pic). Awarded by Plain English Campaign (first pic, their seal) every year, the last winner was Steve McClaren(third pic), the then England manager for his line “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through” on Wayne Rooney.

  2. Plain English Campaign (A) awards the Foot in the Mouth award (B) for a nonsensical line uttered by a celebrity in public. 2007’s award went to Steve McLaren’s (C) for his comment– “He (Wayne Rooney) is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through.”–I confess I had to Wiki the comment McLaren made.

  3. The second visual is the ¨Foot in Mouth¨ award which McLaren won for his “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through” comment about Rooney. The first visual was a bit misguiding, but wiki pointed us to the Plain English Campaign, who appear to be behind the FiM award, and have visual one as their logo (because apparently they fight for crystal clear communications!!!)

  12. Steve McCLaren, Foot in mouth award which he received last year for “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through” talking about Wayne Rooney.

    Pic of a diamond – Connx to Rooney getting married recently?

  13. Visual 2 corresponds to “Foot in Mouth” award, which was won by Steve McLaren (Visual 3) recently. McLaren said: “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through”, when assessing Wayne Rooney’s abilities.

  17. Steve mcclaren winning the foot in mouth award for saying about wayne rooney “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through”.. the crystal is the symbol of the plain english campaign, which presents this award

  18. First is the Crystal MArk, ehich is some sort of guarantee – developed by the Plain English Campaign.

    Second is the ‘Foot-in-Mouth’ award also created by the Plain English Campaign – obviously given for making a stupid statement.

    This is Steve McClaren who won the award in 2007 for obviously making a stupid statement – I think it was about the Roonster.

  19. A. Logo of Plain English Campaign
    B. Foot in Mouth Award
    C Steve McClaren

    The Annual Foot in Mouth Award is awarded by the Plain English Campaign for “a baffling comment by a public figure”. The 2007 Winner was Steve McClaren (The former English Football Coach) who said “He is inexperienced, but he’s experienced in terms of what he’s been through” when he was asked something about Wayne Rooney.

  20. The award, a depiction of dontopedology, is the footinthemouth award and steve mclaren was the latest winner(joesph chacko ran a close 2nd). This award is given by an organization called PEC which also awards the crystal mark seen in topmost pic to documents which are in plain english and circumvents the use of ambiguous synonyms that tend to obfuscate the reader which results in the whole document to seem like gobbledygook like this reply while Thomas Masun would have a given an answer worth a crystal mark.

    Visual 3 is Steve McClaren, the former England football coach who has been awarded the Plain English Campaign’s annual foot in mouth award. He had reportedly quoted on Wayne Rooney’s experience/inexperience during an interview on Radio and his quote got him the award. I do not know of Visual 1 and 2 but the connect should be ‘foot in mouth’.
