Presidential Potty Mouth

A microphone that was mistakenly left on at a G8 summit luncheon this morning picked up a revealing exchange between President George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

While chomping on a buttered slice of toast, President Bush let Blair know in no uncertain terms his feelings on the conflict by saying, "See, the irony is what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this sh*t."

In a press conference later, an unapologetic Bush addressed reporters. "I don't give a flying (expletive) what you heard. Like none of you freakin pansies have ever said sh*t before. Speaking of pansies, did you see Tony Blair's pink tie?"

Blair told reporters that at first he didn't even notice the Presidential gaff. "I was so grossed out by him talking with his mouth full that I was trying to come up with an excuse to go sit somewhere else. Afterwards, when I realized what he said, you could have knocked me over with a feather. You see, sh*t is just not a word that we British use. I prefer the term rubbish."

This event is far from the first time that sneaky microphones have caught politicians and celebrities unawares. Below are just a few of the more memorable miked moments.

Clinton: And One, Two, Three Cha Cha Cha...and Dip!
Jackson: Gimme back my wallet.

Bush: ....and then the priest said, "Hey, that's not the salami!"
Clinton: I just killed the man next to me.

Oprah: Don't worry Tom. After the show, I'm going to take you to a nice place where you can rest.
Tom: My spaghetti is talking to me.

Stewart: Get one speck of yolk in my egg whites perky girl and I will have you killed in your sleep.

O.K. I should stop. I know, it's not that funny. Well, maybe just one more...

Big Bird: Hey, you're kind of cute. How about after the show you come on over to my nest and I'll show you my Snuffleupagus.

Too, too funny! I was upset earlier when I realized that Shrub had stuck his foot in his mouth again, and I missed it. This makes for it though! Thanks:)

I disagree ... they ARE that funny! What a delightful find as I was randomly browsing. Makes me want to try my hand at it.

Love the pic's collection. It would likely be a sad day if these people were secretly mic'd all the time. It would put all those hard working speach writters out of work.

But the possibilities of new books hitting the market would be priceless.

G8 meeting--$45 million dollars
The price of war--$8 gazillion dollars
Bush speaking out loud--priceless.
