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:

Eric Trump Sends Out Electoral Map of Men-Only Election Hinting 'Momentum Is on Their Side' and Receives Prompt Mocking from the Internet

If only Nate Silver could've known that his electoral map tweets would inspire the latest hilarious meme movement. Silver was attempting to illustrate how the election would turn out if only men, or only women turned out to vote based on a polls-only forecast. The blue map showed Hillary winning big time, while the red shows Trump with the easy victory. Shortly after all this, Eric Trump pushed the men-only electoral map as a 'hint' momentum was on their side. Let the hilarity ensue.

Remember in class when you were called on to read an excerpt from a book, and the ensuing catastrophe that was trying to remember to breathe between sentences?

Let Poppy Harlow be a lesson to us all. This is what happens when you forget to breathe for a hot minute.

On Monday morning CNN's Poppy Harlow PTFO. Midway through a live broadcast we can hear the anchorwoman hit an imaginative wall. Shortly after Harlow came back on the air to reassure viewers that she had, 'gotten a little hot and passed out for a moment.'

So, this absurd clip and the fact that it's all part of some weird game show based out of Japan immediately brought to mind a clip of another wonderfully horrible mispronunciation---we'll call him the Worcestershire Sauce Man:

Japan's New McDonald's Cup Design Is Hilariously NSFW (13 Images)

What seems like an innocent and cute design has going horribly wrong -- and in so many ways!

Do you think the Japanese designers behind this product didn't realize all these alternative views of their design, or was it intention? Either way, the cup has gone viral and as they say, 'There is no such thing as bad publicity.'

Google has cancelled their April Fools day prank after it backfired. It turns out that if you install a "mic drop" button which mutes the email conversation and sends a GIF on an email platform that 900 million people use for personal AND PROFESSIONAL reasons, not all of them will like it.


via Gmail

First of all, they automatically sent a 'Minions' GIF, and some people said it sent the GIF even when they pressed the normal send button.  To make matters worse, a number of people who accidentally pressed the "mic drop" button were angry and some even said they lost their job or a job opportunity.  

Google updated the prank announcement with this statement:

UPDATE: Well, it looks like we pranked ourselves this year. 😟 Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We’re truly sorry. The feature has been turned off. If you are still seeing it, please reload your Gmail page.
