LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Monday she had received coaching tips from her British Parliament counterpart John Bercow on how to say his trademark OOORRRDDEERR holler.

Bercow’s flowery-yet-feisty style during Brexit debates has made him something of a cult figure among global television news audiences and on Brexit-following social media.

“We have met with the speaker and learned how to say OORRRDDDEEERRRR,” Pelosi told an audience at the London School of Economics as she got a group of colleagues that had traveled with her to mimic Bercow’s style.
