* A memoir written by an RAF Blenheim pilot during WW2 relates how they paid particular attention to the position of a certain switch during their pre-flight check after a lewd discussion by the crew of a Blenheim regarding a newly-arrived WAAF was relayed live to the woman in question, who eventually ran screaming out of the radio room. The CO was not amused.

* At a city council meeting in 2010, [[StargateCity Vancouver]] mayor Gregor Robertson landed himself in hot water when he was recorded [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IDcmUQa0WM insulting his constituents as "hacks" of a rival local political party]] because they opposed his rental housing development plan. Annoyingly, the media (and inevitable backlash against the reports) focused on a [[WindmillPolitical supposed outrage over his use of profanity]] rather than the fact that he was [[UnfortunateImplications belittling anyone who disagreed with him]] as a "hack" of a local political party.

* During the Apollo 16 lunar mission, while the astronauts were resting after a moonwalk, John Young told his colleague Charlie Duke how the potassium-laced orange juice they were given to drink was giving him gas, and how he intended never to eat another [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] orange again after the flight was over. Eventually Mission Control warned him that he had a "hot mike". It seems that his mike key was stuck in the "on" position -- quite possibly by some dried orange drink that had been spilled earlier. The very same orange drink he'd been complaining about.

->'''Mr. Random:''' Look at them. Enjoying their triumph. "Ooh, we're so happy! We saved Klimpaloon! Let's all sing!" Well, enjoy it now, because I will get my hands on Klimpaloon! I'll unravel his secret, even if I have to rip him apart, stitch by stitch and then, the moronic people of the world will beat a path to my door, and beg for my cheap Klimpaloon knockoff line, 'cause consumers are just like lemmings, brainless little animals that I can manipulate right off the fiscal cliff like the puppet master that I am! ...Was that thing on?\\
