A character with a big mouth says something stupid or, better yet, self-incriminating, often with the subject of their commentary standing nearby or, better yet, [[RightBehindMe right behind them]]. Usually the twin trope to or immediately followed by DidIJustSayThatOutLoud.

The trope name comes from the phrase "to put your foot in your mouth" (also playfully referred to as "foot-in-mouth disease", a pun on the very serious livestock illness "foot-''and''-mouth disease").[[note]]Which in turn is not to be confused with the rather less serious [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand,_foot_and_mouth_disease hand, foot, and mouth disease]], which primarily afflicts small children and is generally speaking a week's nuisance at worst.[[/note]]

* ''FanFic/ThisBites:
** During the scene in the palace baths, after Cross finishes telling Nami he has too much respect for her to peep on her, she manages to call him up to the wall to talk to him, only to give him an eyeful of ''Vivi'' instead. The first thing Cross comments on is whether she's dedicated with the hair dye. Vivi's stool, meet Cross's cranium.
** When Cross wakes up from Enel's initial attack and sees Conis, he makes a statement about how he wished he could've seen Enel's face when Luffy kicked the crap out of him, thinking that he missed the whole arc... not realizing he was only knocked out for a second and a very unamused Enel is right next to them.
** Since Usopp never leaves the crew in Water 7, while acting as Sniperking to try to pretend to be someone braver, he essentially states that 'Usopp' deserted from the mission of rescuing Robin without any significant reason. Luffy is not pleased by the implications.

* Done in epic fashion in ''Anime/DeathNote'' when L asks Light how, [[AmateurSleuth as a detective]], he would go about trapping Kira, Light's secret SerialKiller alter-ego. Once Light has given L his answer, L "praises" him by pointing out that while it usually takes professional investigators severals minutes to even come up with an answer to that question, Light immediately responded with an answer that a serial killer talking directly to the investigators would give.
