Given the nature of live news and the frequency it airs, the chances of a news anchor screwing up at some point during his or her career and making a blooper reel is extremely high. Unfortunately for Canadian journalist Lisa Dutton, some slip ups are far more goofy or embarrassing than others, and it’ll take a long time before she lives this next one down.

Trying to explain to viewers how her son got through teething, the anchor simulated how the little guy held the fat end of a vibrating tooth brush in his mouth, and well, you can probably guess what that looked like. Take a look at the hilarious footage below…

Poor Lisa. She cannot catch a break. Last year, she mistakenly said “pick-a-dick” instead of “pick-a-tick”, as in tickets, during a story about a sausage-eating competition. Footage of that foul-up raced around the Internet, and more than likely, this hilarity will travel even further.

I love the look on her co-anchor’s face as she starts telling the story. He realizes things are about to go south, but he’s so dumfounded he can’t bring himself to do anything other than stare at the camera with a Michael Scott that’s-what-she-said-grin.

Here’s to hoping Dutton is able to get back to reporting the news rather than making the news.
