Bloopers are clumsy mistakes that are usually made in
public.
The television show “TV’s Bloopers and Practical
Jokes” and many blooper books are indicators of the interest
we have in other people’s goofs. Here are two from “All
Time Great Bloopers” by Blooper Snooper Kermit Schafer and
one from “More Press Boners” by Earle Tempel, and how you
might use them in a presentation.

=> A while back I heard about a DJ on WIOD in Miami, Florida
who said, “This is Alan Courtney speaking. Don’t forget,
tonight at nine, our special guest . . . (pause) . . .will be
. . . I forgot.” Well, I haven’t forgotten why we are here
today . . . or (For an introducer) I couldn’t possibly
forget who is here with us today.

=> Mayor Daley of Chicago was being interviewed on TV
following the riots during the Democratic convention. The
mayor stated, “The police in Chicago are not here to create
disorder, they are here to preserve it.” I hope I don’t
create or preserve any disorder in my presentation today.

=> From The San Leandro, CA News: I saw a notice in the
newspaper the other day. It said, “Industrial Boulevard is
empty because it is a road to nowhere. Work is underway to
extend it.” If we keep developing the obsolete widget. We
will be on the road to nowhere too.
