TV meltdowns, outbursts and blunders - VIDEO

Bill O'Reilly in his younger daysBe honest: who doesn't let out a good guffaw when watching somebody famous snap on TV? Or better yet, screw up?

Apparently, Bill O'Reilly is a big offender, since he is practically the star of the "outbursts" section of 30 Hilarious TV Meltdowns, Outbursts and Blunders, a collection of video clips highlighting these funnies. In classic American Idol style, an auditioner from the X Factor goes off on Simon Cowell and friends when she is rejected. Whoo-boy.

My favorite meltdown has got to be when Bill Clinton loses it in fits of laughter when Boris Yeltsin calls a reporter a disaster, after the reporter claims their summit was one. Or is it when a bunch of kids pelt a reporter with snowballs?

For the blunders? I laughed out loud before I even watched the one where the QVC host stabs himself with the sword is is hawking. Although when the techie drops and breaks his one-of-a-kind device, it makes for some wonderfully awkward TV.

On the one hand, I feel a little guilty for laughing so hard at these real-life goofs, but seriously, some of them are in contention for the Darwin Awards. These are so much funnier than watching an actor flub his lines. You've got to tune in.

Whenever I am feeling stressed at work, I just scream "F* IT! WE'LL DO IT LIVE!" and I instantly feel better.
