So we’re all prone to boners. Or, mistakes, if you will.
Like the guy who found this crumbled $20 in his pocket and made a scene about it.
There’s a new episode of the “Sarah Silverman Show” on Comedy Central, where she thinks she sees Osama Bin Laden walking down the street and runs over him with her car. And she does it a second time when she finds out the first really wasn’t him. And she chases another down on her bike when she finds out the first two weren’t really him…
Wait, that’s a comedy show. Scripted. Intentional humor.
Oh, stop. You’re killing me.
Today, it was about 9:20 a.m. this morning, when Dan Davis, aka “The Duke,” did his update on ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd show. He closed with repeating a story he reported on earlier — that Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga was trying to expediate the sale of the team so he could avoid capital-gains taxes if Barack Obama is elected president (story linked here).
Davis said that he made a mistake in pronouncing Obama’s name, “it was unintentional and I apologize.”
An ESPN spokesman later confirmed that Davis said “Osama” instead of “Obama.”
Davis isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last. But at least it was caught, dealt with and let go. Or, there will be some who won’t let it go.
Like the story about the absentee ballots in New York that were actually printed with the name “Osama” instead of “Obama” (linked here).
It led to Conan O’Brien making the joke: “Today they apologized and printed new ballots that say ‘Barack Hussein Osama.’”
As long as they’re sorry and fixed it ,we’re good.
