Regardless of what Spaniards think of their ousted prime minister Mariano Rajoy's track record, they all agree on one thing -- his truisms and slips of the tongue are legendary.
After the veteran leader was toppled by a parliamentary no-confidence vote on Friday, Spanish media and social networks were flooded with his most embarrassing -- and sometimes endearing -- quotes from over the years.
Here are some of his most famous and infamous gaffes:
- Who deceived people? -
"What we did -- which you didn't -- is de... deceive people," he told parliament in 2016, hesitating a little as he said it.
- 'ETA is a great nation' -
"I want to give Spaniards a message of hope, ETA is a great nation... Spain, sorry, is a great nation," he said in 2007 when he was opposition leader, confusing his country with the Basque separatist group that waged decades of violence.
- Spain: full of Spaniards -
Spain "is a great country full of Spanish people" Rajoy declared in 2015.
- Same but different -
"It's not the same if one person governs than if another does, it's not the same, otherwise said, it's very different," was another of his infamous truisms.
- Mysterious sky water -
"This is not like the water that falls from the sky without really knowing why," he once declared.
- 'Can't read my handwriting' -
In February 2011, just months before he would go on to be elected prime minister for the first time, he got stuck in a television programme during a Q&A with audience members.
Asked to respond to a question, he said: "I wrote it here and I can't read my handwriting."
- Spanglish -
Known for his poor grip of English, Rajoy in 2012 told then British Prime Minister David Cameron: "It's very difficult todo esto," using a mix of English and Spanish.
- 'Mr PM' no longer
And in 2013, Rajoy started a parliamentary speech by saying "Mr Prime Minister", forgetting that was him -- but it's a phrase he may have to use again if he comes back as opposition leader.
