  Randall Somebody on Donald Trump's show, "The Apprentice," after the Donald suggested he might hire two apprentices this week :

  "It's 'The Apprentice,' not 'The Apprenti' [ai]."

  Rebecca Somebody (no relation) on _Fox & Friends_ this morning describing her job offers since coming in second :

  "Of those I might accept, several have been considerative."

  I think she meant, "worth considering."  OED has "considerative" in (not from) 1560 as "To be considered or taken into account."
