First used on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart].

Whittington, a lawyer from Austin, TX, with his 28 gauge shotgun from a reported distance of thirty yards. (Description written by Mark Frauenfelder)

Among the many aspects of the story that became fodder for late night television comedians, were the quail themselves, and the whole idea of such staged hunting.
"Look, the mere fact that we're even talking about how the vice president drives up with his rich friends in cars to shoot farm-raised wingless quailtards is letting the quail know 'how' we're hunting them."
