To discuss Fake Andy Shaw of the Month: May is for Repeats

In a historic moment, we have a repeat winner of Fake Andy Shaw of the Month. This is the biggest honor this side of Lisa and Screech winning the Casey Kasem dance-off.

May's Fake Andy Shaw of the Month is... ABC news reporter Andy Shaw, who made it to failblog.org this month for this blooper. He last made it as Fake Andy Shaw in March.

Several of you, who evidently think of me way too often, were kind enough to point this out. I'd be remiss if I didn't give bizarro me props for messing up.

I will say, as a former TV play-by-play man for college football, I can understand forgetting you are wearing a microphone when you have one of those headsets on. It's like asking someone where you put your sunglasses when they are on top of your head, or where you put your kid when you forgot him in the van.*

* Although that, technically, is a felony of some sort.
I apologize for the lack of posts this week- the aforementioned computer death and the now-mentioned crazy work schedule=not feasible. Hope everyone has a nice holiday weekend...I promise to get you my rollercoaster-related post up soon.

Do you think you will ever run out of Andy Shaws?

I hear that a lot of people "forget" they have mics on. A friend of mine told me about a really embarrassing incident in high school...
She was in a play and all of the actors wore those little personal mics - well during intermission, one of the guys went to the bathroom, and FORGOT his mic was on. The entire auditorium heard him pee. But I guess it could've been worse.

That was funny

He thinks he needs a microphone; I think that's false.

P.S. The word verification for this post was "cringe". How apropos.

Oh, Andy. I forgot your warning about the movie Quarantine...

How embarrassing.
I do that a lot at my patient's houses. (not look for a mic) but I always think I forgot my pen and it's in my scrub top or on my clipboard...lol.
