* ThatCameOutWrong: A particularly infamous example that frequently is seen on blooper specials, where host Jim Lange and the contestant are talking about golf. The contestant comments that the secret to his game is kissing his golf clubs beforehand; Lange ... well, he kisses his balls for good luck, something the audience found quite humorous while Lange looks dumbfounded as to why.
