With election season upon us, mic gaffes are everywhere, sound-bytes are getting non-stop replay on TV, and everything everyone says is going to be cut-down, rearranged, and repurposed. So that absolute LAST THING anyone should think about doing is to start saying something dumb without making sure thier microphone is off.
It happens all the time. And guess what? It's always really f*cking funny.
We here at CRAVE have compiled some famous "hot mic" moments for your viewing pleasure — some politcal, some celebrity, all horrendously awkward.
1. TV Anchor calls his co-host a whore… accidently? Ironically?
WGN anchors usually start drinking around 6AM.
2. Britney Spear's Vagina is Funny.
If that redneck drawl doesn't get you hot, nothing will.
3. Rev. Jesse Jackson wants to castrate Obama…
Is it weird that it's kind of sexy when he talks in a whisper?
4. Guy tries to be badass, forgets to hang up the phone.
We've got no love for the Koch Bros., but we still think an overheard baby-eating joke is funny.
5. Hockey Players love to curse. Suck it, NBC:
Waddu expect? It's hockey!
6. Hardcore conservative loves talking about hot sex:
"My husband likes to talk during sex, last night he called me from his secratary's office."
