And now, a word from Fox News anchor Jane Skinner - VIDEO
A few years ago, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith got in trouble for flubbing a report and using a phrase meaning oral sex. He didn't hear the end of it from people, and now the clip lives on forever online. But now he has someone who can identify with what happened to him, fellow Fox News anchor Jane Skinner (of "Skinnerville," as Shep likes to say every day).
Skinner was reporting recently on the war in Afghanistan, and she meant to say "top cop," but for some reason she couldn't get the word "cop" out, and said another word not once but twice. Shep was pretty funny about it, not only saying "South Carolina Gamecocks, she's a big fan!" and "We'll look for you on YouTube Jane!" And, as you can see from the video below, she has indeed made it to YouTube.

I did telemarketing for a number of years, and one day I was calling a record store to see if they wanted to buy magazines (yes, the job was just as exciting as it sounds), and when I tried to introduce myself, instead of saying "This is Bob" I said "This is Bomb." I started laughing uncontrollably, as did the guy on the phone and the other salesperson in the room next to me. Not as funny as the word cock and not in front of millions, but funny nonetheless.
