Twelve Screw-Ups & Meltdowns
If there's one thing that consistently makes me laugh, it's a screw-up or flub that was caught on film or tape, especially the ones that lead to celebrity meltdowns. The more obscenities involved, the better. Here are some hilarious examples, starting with Mr. Finger-Lickin'-Good himself. Most of these aren't all that safe for work, and some don't even seem real:
(1) Colonel Sanders:
(2) Casey Kasem:
(3) Siskel and Ebert, really belligerent:
(4) Siskel and Ebert, a little less belligerent:
(5) Orson Welles:
(6) Britney Spears:
(7) Alex Trebek:
(8) Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis:
(9) Jack Palance:
(10) Alec Baldwin:
(11) F#ckhead O'Reilly:
(12) coked-up Richard Pryor (a rather long one):

Wow....Richard, I think needs to slow down on some the chemicals. It's still very funny thou, in the politically incorrect way.
Oh man, I'm TOTALLY blushing watching these! Alex Trebek never looked hotter. And I always thought he was an uptight Canadian nerd! But that O'Reilly, nastiest piece of jerk on television. Unbelievable. Must be fun to work for.
Let me share my favorite televised meltdown: Whitney Houston meets a drunk Serge Gainsbourg.
This video history of O'Reilly is pretty interesting. He reminds me more of a radio guy than the typical talking head. In radio, the more "outrageous" the host, the bigger the ratings. His rant as he tapes the "Inside Edition" promo strikes me as calculated to get behind-the-scenes attention. He parlayed that into a career. That he may be a genuinely angry guy is almost beside the point. He knows who to be angry in front of.
