There’s a big ol’ pile of bupkis happening in the television industry this week, so I’m just going to go ahead and post this compilation of news bloopers. I love news bloopers so much. You could take all the brightest comedic minds across the country and give them a full year to tweak and hone a single perfect joke, and I wouldn’t find it half as funny as a reporter accidentally saying “penis” on live TV. For all the blabbering I do about being a sophisticated comedy nerd, the truth is that I’m essentially an eight-year-old. If someone in the graphics department ever replaces a reporter’s name on the screen with something like Dr. Boomboom Tittybutt, I will probably die immediately of LOLs. (NOTE: Please do this.)
The only bone I have to pick with the video is that it’s titled “Best News Bloopers of 2012.” It’s only June, people. While I certainly appreciate the content, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We still have almost six months of news bloopers ahead of us. Sweet Brown and her delightful case of bronchitis will still be there in December. There’s no need to rush.
