Ever told a joke that fell completely flat? Happens to me all the time.
But at least I haven’t done it on live television.
Ever wondered what you’d say to the Dalai Lama if you met him? Well, here’s a tip. Don’t copy this guy coming up.
And have you ever mixed up a work colleague with a leading Nazi? That was a rhetorical question by the way. Obviously we’ve all done that. But probably not on live TV.
S0 back to the Dalai Lama. I thought he was supposed to spread sweetness and balm – not humiliation – though to be fair, Karl Stefanovic from the Australian Today show did it to himself.
Apparently the Dalai Lama has a great sense of humour, as… er… proven by this link.
So on to BBC Scotland and the Nazi weather woman. (NB – Before I get sued – I don’t mean to imply that Cat Cubie is a Nazi. Scottish weather is not her fault.)
Aah – the joys of other people’s broadcasting cock ups.
Some day I must post the audio of a former colleague (whom I hold in high regard otherwise) broadcasting in such a tedious boring manner, that he literally fell asleep as he himself was talking. It was our favourite piece of audio to play again and again to while away the hours overnight. (To be fair he was a hard worker and may just have been exhausted.)
