    I read about a "blooper" that occurred on a detroit news station last winter--the young attractive blonde newswoman anchor turned to the weatherman,who had predicted 8 inches of snow the night before(but it never snowed that night!) and she said--
    "So Bob...What happenned to the 8 inches you promised me last night??"...... :haha: :haha: :rotfl: :rotfl: --

    ---the entire news staff and about half the camera crew left the studio and didn't return for several minites,and they had tears running down their faces they were still trying to hold back the laughter!..the poor newswoman turned BEET red when she realized what she'd said,and left the room. :doah: :blush: .didnt return until the next day!... :D :D

    Another one was a woman cashier at a store at the mall--the credit card machine was "down",and a long line of customers started building up at the register--so the woman opens another register and starts calling out to the customers "I can DO YOU if you have cash!"...after she said it several ties,her manger came over and said "I think you might want to rephrase what your saying--some customers are getting the wrong idea!"... :haha: :haha: :D

    Well if snopes is calling it an urban legend they got it wrong. I saw the blooper of that newscast a while back. Unless someone went to the trouble of convincingly hoaxing a newscast just for a 12 second blooper spot...which seems very unlikely.

    :dunno: :dunno:

    Snopes didn't call it a hoax, they just commented on it. Go to the link. When they research something and find it false, it says false in red letters, or true in green letters.

    I wasn't sure, I did go read it and came away feeling they had dismissed it as urban legend...

    It was kind of an ambigous report. I got the feeling they were saying it might be true, but that there were lots of similar stories too.
