In England we have Colemanballs - a term coined by Private Eye magazine to describe gaffes perpetrated by (usually British) sports commentators. It is derived from the surname of the now retired BBC broadcaster David Coleman and the suffix -balls, as in "to balls up".

Such as:

'Football is a game of three halves'

'He's going for the green,. If you're watching in black and white it's the one behind the pink'

Michele sent me to see how things are going, Judy. How lovely of your blogfriends to stop by and cook for you :-))

I had seen these before, as you suspected. But I read them all again because they're so funny. I just love Norman Einstein.

Hi Judy,

I LOVED Norman Einstein.

Funny, but a friend of mine was taking the test to be an FBI agent many years ago.

One of the 120 questions on his admission test was; "What is Krushchev's first name?"

He could not recall the name to save his life so he called him Leonard.

Leonard Krushchev.... Well, of course that was not correct, but he passed the test anyway and as soon as he put his pencil down from the test he was on the phone for the correct answer. Nikita..

We have often laughed about that
stupid answer. He had a long and successful career in the Bureau and only recently retired after all these years.

Beverly said...

Thoseare so funny. The Mariah Carey one is very sad, though.

Seamus said...

Diane Mandy said...

Are you for real???

Diane Mandy said...

WHat I meant to say...are these quote for real?

utenzi said...

The quotes are funny but most of them are made up. I'm sure equally insane statements are out there but those Email joke writers aren't much for research. Doesn't really matter tho--they get passed on, true or not.
