Top Ten Funniest and Worst Things Said In News Broadcasts

Ever since I began watching Have I Got News For You, I have scanned various news broadcasts for bloopers. Here are some of my faves.

The Top Ten

1 Good evening, pedophiles...

As Paul Merton said on Have I Got News For You, there may have been a punctuation issue. - PositronWildhawk

Hey, Posthing! Thanks for this funny list. I can imagine a smiling woman saying THIS in a cheerful, sing-song, carefree voice, like there was nothing at all wrong with it. Just made me laugh! :D - Britgirl

2 Today lesbian forces invaded... No, sorry, that should be Lesbianese...
3 Denver University talk provides insight into close relationship
4 (Following Margaret Thatcher's death) "news just in from her family that Margaret Thatcher has died, peacefully, following a strike this morning..."

That, my fellow TopTenners, was unfortunate. - PositronWildhawk

5 (At Nelson Mandela's funeral) "the man who brought them freedom may be gone, but he lives on in their hearts, despite the massive problems that remain in this country."

Haha! Great list... Oh! Laughed at each and every one of it. Superb! - Kiteretsunu

Nice way to remember the man, I'm sure. - PositronWildhawk

6 There's an overturned tractor and trailer headed northwards on route 93.

And coming up right behind you! Watch out! - PositronWildhawk

7 There have been injuries and deaths in boxing, but none of them serious.

That guy just cracked his skull! Still, no rush. Just walk over there calmly and check if he's breathing. - PositronWildhawk

This 'un and the Mandela blooper were so hilarious! - HezarioSeth

8 One thing money can't buy is yo mama. She's for free and everybody knows it.
9 An Australian army vehicle has gone missing after being painted with camouflage.

Who'll be first to walk into it, I wonder? - PositronWildhawk

10 (At a burning house) "oh s*** get the f*** outta there!"

Way to reassure the people watching. - PositronWildhawk

Mommy, what is the news man saying?

The Contenders

11 Taylor, I'll let you finish but Beyonce had the best videos of all time!
12 (Weather report) I will now show you all the weather in NYC. Let's see there will be rain here, here, and a lot in Europe--- Oh I have the wrong map OOPS
