As May evaporates into the lazy haze of June, why not take some time to reflect on that which really matters: The Best May News Bloopers (Some cursing), compiled by NewsBeFunny - a veritable treasure trove of flubs, goofs, spills, and camera-crashing.

"How good are the cookies there?" Laugh Out Loud.

That first clip was more concerning than funny, as she got hit by a foul ball during a MLB game (slo-mo at 1:06). Granted, the mic took most of the impact, but like that earlier selfie taken at Fenway, it's not as entertaining as the rest of the clips.

Cookies were awesome!

The woman at 5:12 is a pro.

Also, here is a video of a reporter being hit on the head by a plane.

The FBI agent scaling the unlocked fence at 6:50 is pretty funny.

I have to say that the Spanish speaking woman had rather well placed hair when her wardrobe malfunction occurred.

So apparently local "Good Morning _____" shows are the party-gigs of broadcast journalism.

Hiccup weatherman is a trooper, he just keeps going on no matter how bad it gets.

Was anyone else hoping the guy who ended up in the water would pull the reporter in as revenge?

For a moment I thought the soaked guy was going to sock a good one to the clumsy reporter, he sounded really shocked.

I love this kind of thing so very very much.

I love that guy who got knocked into the water. I thought he was gonna swing at the reporter. "What the hell's WRONG WITH YOU, MAN?!?" Nice inclusion of the KVUE (Austin) team laughing at that idiot who paid $1500 to win a rasta banana at a carnival, that was all over social media here.

Tenacious D doing a weather report in New Zealand? OK, I wasn't expecting that. Followed immediately by Hulk Hogan doing a weather report in Tampa, but he lives there so it's not that weird.

I think the compiler is a bit racist, though. He includes that guy with the crazy hair who went off about "a white woman running to a black man", which isn't a blooper and we've been over how racist that whole episode was. Then around 7:15, there's a black woman talking about how shitty the Detroit city government is and making good points, but I guess it's funny because of the way she speaks?

Yeah, December, that bugged me, too.

God I loved that. Thank you.

In the context of YouTube, TV "bloopers" seem completely uncompelling.

That soaked guy is so completely enraged. He's (1)washing (2) a boat (3) literally inches from the ocean and then shocked, SHOCKED, that he got wet! How could this have happened, here, while washing a boat inches from the ocean!? No, he's not OK. His watch got wet! The watch that he was wearing because there's no way to get a watch wet while washing a boat next to the ocean. His watch, man. What you are idiots doing here anyway at this televised event while he is trying to dry clean a boat?

The guy responsible for the cookies prank, Karl Stefanovic (who you can see laughing in the clip), has a few bloopers of his own:

Here he is presenting the morning after the Australian TV industry awards, while clearly still drunk from the night before

Reacting to a farmer's unexpectedly raunchy joke

Long stabby thing

and this terrifically awkward scene after a viewer fails to win a competition

@DecemberBoy: the "guy with the crazy hair" is the guy who rescued the first of the three abducted/held-against-their-will girls in Cleveland. The Detroit woman is funny because she just starts going off, gathering momentum, until she just starts cussing everything and everyone.

Neither of these things being funny has to do with the fact that they're black (other than Charles Ramsey drawing attention to the fact that white women, by and large, do not go running into the arms of black men).

Stop trying to find racism in everything and laugh a little.

So: mostly bloopers, two unexpected celebrity appearances, and two interviews with black people in which nothing goes appreciably awry.

Each of these things is just like the others!

Really? Hey, thanks, because y'know, I didn't make it clear that I know exactly who he is but forgot his name.
