While you were busy spending the month gearing up for Halloween, the news media was busy in October making some pretty silly gaffes.

As you've come to expect, there's a great cross-section of (some NSFW) screw-ups here, from a farting NFL analyst to a microphone-swallowing tuba to a surprise cameo by a beloved Saved by the Bell character.

It just goes to show that when the news is live, you never know what may happen. So, while you should tune in to see what's going on in the world, you really should tune in to see what will go wrong.

All we know is we can't to see what November brings. We plan to give thanks for the continuing gift of news bloopers.
