German teachers likely would have been just as tough on Michigan 's Republican Party for believing that "farfenugen" means something in German. A news release by the state GOP meant to use the German expression "Fahrvergnügen" - made famous in Volkswagen advertisements as "the joy of driving" - to criticize Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm for the auto manufacturer's decision to move its corporate offices out of Michigan . But the GOP misspelled the word, the Detroit Free Press points out . Democrats no doubt took some schadenfreude in the error.

Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal (D), the chief executive of the nation's least populous state, this week heard about a population explosion there that even the U.S. Census Bureau can't keep up with, the Casper Star-Tribune reports . During a tour of the state, Freudenthal was told by the mayor of Lost Springs , Wyo. , that the smallest incorporated town with a post office in the United States - with an announced population of one resident, according to the Census Bureau - now has three. "Our population has really swollen," Leda Price said, adding that the town is facing a housing shortage.
