Cue the reality show credits with the LMFAO-produced theme song. Yes, boys and girls, it appears that after years of running around and trifling with foolishness, Kanye West is finally thinking about settling down with a nice, respectable girl—specifically, Kim Kardashian. The inseparable-for-months (weeks? We must be up to months by now, right?) couple seem close to tying the knot, as US Weekly reports that Kanye is already hinting at the likely civil union in a guest verse on an upcoming Pusha T track. "I saw you in the club in a white dress/Now I want to put you in a white dress.” Meanwhile, an anonymous second source (BIG UP YOURSELF ANONYMOUS SECOND SOURCE!!) says, “Kim and Kanye are 100 percent having conversations about marriage."
Well, this is obviously great news. Pop culture is just a better place to live in with these two crazy kids living out a reality show in the tabloids and the blogs and whatnot—who even needs cameras, really? And imagine if they did get hitched, the suspense as their marriage approached the 72 day mark...just too good. (By the way, Kanye, there are some perfectly lovely non-white wedding dresses. Don't be putting Kim in a box like that.)
To commemorate, enjoy some ridiculous photos of Kim and Kanye walking together and losing their pants and such:
There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
