"When at a press conference on April 25th [1941] he [Franklin D. Roosevelt] was asked about public criticism that he was using U.S. Navy warships to escort convoys he insisted that ‘Patrols were not escorts. If by calling a cow a horse you think that makes the cow a horse,’ he quipped to the reporters, ‘I don't think so’. But of course it was FDR who was calling a cow a horse. When a reporter called him on it by asking ‘Mr. President can you tell us the difference between a patrol and a convoy?’ FDR shot back, ‘You know the difference between a cow and a horse?’"
