In celebration of mental lapses and pure idiocy, here is a collection of stupid utterances, unintentional and otherwise, from the worlds of politics, radio, television, newspapers, show business, sports, and literature - and everywhere else people can, and have, put their feet in their mouths.

"Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is in the Pacific.

A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein." -Joe Theismann, former NFL football quarterback and sports analystshow more
