Pretty much the only reason to actually watch TV in 2016 is the possibility of catching a real live blooper, and on June 27th, the BBC delivered. Giving distressed Brits some much-needed post-Brexit giggles (that don't include man-on-coin satirical erotica), anchor Joanna Gosling was caught chillin' on her phone during a broadcast. This caused her to miss her cue, much to the delight of everyone on the Internet who hasn't watched TV in years.

Fortunately for Ms. Gosling, most people have, at one time or another, been caught zoning out at work or with family. It just doesn't happen to most of us on TV. It was a humanizing moment that most found endearing.

Gosling quickly regained her professionalism and segued directly into the news. Later, she thanked people on Twitter for their well wishes.
