In series G of QI we used our highest-profile klaxon of all-time when we forfeited President Obama's inaugural speech in which he claimed that "44 Americans have held this office." Our point is that while he is considered the 44th president, this is only because Grover Cleveland held the position twice with a break making him the twenty-second (1885-1889) AND twenty-fourth (1893-1897) President of the United States.
