Bloop lovers, rejoice! News Be Funny has released their compilations of the best news bloopers of the year. The year 2016 didn't dissapoint. 

Yup, over the last 365 days, we sure have spent a lot of time being afraid of the news. I, for one, have to take several deep breaths before loading up Twitter in the morning. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy the times newscasters accidentally said the word “fart on air,” had their microphones thrown in a lake, or got drunk and told the kids at home that they couldn’t be whatever they wanted when they grow up. The magic of live television.

This is truly what this year has been leading to, and it is glorious. 

Not enough bloops? Here’s part one:

Richard Hammond's under fire right now for saying that he doesn't eat ice cream....because he's straight. Dude what in the actual hell are you on about with this?

Maybe Chipotle fell through and this was the dude's next best bet? Who knows. But the details, however scarce, center on a 57-year-old customer who alleges that after eating a meal from Del Taco he fell violently ill, and threw up so much that it caused his esophagus to bleed after already being rushed to the ER and placed in the ICU.

I don't know man. From there he apparently fell into a coma for a few days, and racked up over $160k in medial bills. He's suing for at least half a million in damages, and Del Taco has since said that it'll violently fight the allegations.

If you need to get your news, you could do worse than The Onion, a new poll shows.

According to Morning Consult, “a media and technology company at the intersection of politics, policy, Wall Street, and business strategy,” the satirical newspaper The Onion, which recently ran the headline “Report: Bananas Still Most Popular Fruit For Pretending To Receive Phone Call” is more credible than Infowars, which recently ran the headline “The Shocking Proof That Multiculturalism Has Failed.” No surprise here: The Onion headline is true.

In a shocking upset to conspiracy theorists and screaming men around the globe, 18 percent of people polled considered The Onion (again, the paper put together for laughs) credible, while only 17 percent considered InfoWars credibe. Even more shocking is our new Chief Strategist to the White House Steve Bannon’s former stomping ground, Breitbart, is only considered 19 percent credible. People aren’t just finding white supremacy very helpful these days.

Of course, as the poll points out, this might be affected by the fact that people haven’t heard of Breitbart or Infowars.

“Credibility was significantly lower for far-right sites such as Breitbart and InfoWars, but both were also hampered by being largely unknown. Forty-two percent of people said they “never heard of” Breitbart, and 49 percent said the same about InfoWars. Twenty-six percent said Breitbart was not credible, while 21 percent said the same of InfoWars. Breitbart and InfoWars did better with Republican men, with 32 percent and 27 percent respectively saying the sites were credible.”

You’re still probably better off choosing The Onion. Check out this headline from the other day. Topical!
