He got the 'wood' part down, at least.

In the immediate wake of Tuesday night's vice presidential debate, Norwood University became a Twitter trending topic in the U.S. Thing is, the academic institution invoked by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) prior to answering question No. 1 doesn't exist.

Pence was referring to Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia—the host of the VP debate. He got the "wood" part down, at least.

"Thank you to Norwood University for their wonderful hospitality," he said. "It's deeply humbling for me to be here."

Hey, at least it's better than that time Al Gore made a dad joke when debating former NFL quarterback and Bob Dole running mate Jack Kemp: "If you won’t use any football stories, I won’t tell any of my warm and humorous stories about chlorofluorocarbon abatement." Zing!
