Our Instant Egghead presenters are asked to memorize and recite short snippets of text on the spot, which we later stitch together in editing. But sometimes things go wrong: a botched word, a slipped smile or an awkward moment of amnesia. We've conveniently gathered up all of these bloopers and spliced them together for your personal entertainment.
