In a (presumably unintentional) tribute to HBO’s The Jinx, a city councilman in Georgetown, Texas recently took a bathroom break while wearing a live microphone. Unlike Jinx star Robert Durst, however, the councilman did not seemingly confess to several murders and just peed instead, to the obvious delight of the city’s mayor pro tem.
Sam Rubin, one of the morning anchors at KTLA 5 in Los Angeles, was in the middle of a self-deprecating story about the time his wife asked him, "When did you become the fat one on that show?" when a reporter had to cut in to deliver a breaking totally sick burn.
Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet was caught bitching to a colleague today about his party's lame duck strategy on the Senate floor today, thanks to a friendly hot mic. His complaint? "It's all rigged." Perhaps you might agree!
