Nick Robinson is BBC2's political editor. He'll appear on issues discussion shows on that UK channel discussing issues (duh).
Well, the other day, he had a miscue when one of his mobile devices started playing a ringtone, Queen's Fat Bottomed Girls, according to The Guardian.
No big deal, right? People forget to put devices on silent all the time. I've been in meetings where suddenly some loud song snippet started blaring from someone's pants. You, too, probably.
So, if it's not that big of a deal, why am I wasting your time writing about it? Well, it got me to thinking. What might be some ringtones of others in the news media?
Most of us might not be familiar with media reporters or pundits from outside the U.S., but I'm certain Anderson Cooper, Chris Matthews, Bill O'Reilly, and others could be subject to having some ringtones that might tell us more about them than we want to know.
So, I'd like to know what you think might be the ringtones of some political reports ... or of some politicians. Or suggested ringtones for them.
Have at it.

CCO says: What is the picture on the inside of that album?ReplyDelete
Actually, that's the cover of the 45rpm single. It was issued in Europe and much of the rest of the world sans the "panties" which were drawn on for all us prudes in America.
The album the song comes from is called Jazz and its cover is rather plain, actually.

Sorry. No big deal, huh?
