Welcome to the big leagues, Jane Skinner

Jane Skinner, welcome to Shepardville.  Skinner, who contributes her "Skinnerville" segment to Shepard Smith's "Studio B with Shepard Smith" program on Fox News Channel, made the studio crew (and anyone watching) laugh out loud with this blooper:

Even funnier than Skinner's goof was Smith's reaction.  Talk about self-awareness!  Shep has a bit of experience in this area, too, having committed one of the biggest blunders in recent newcast history:

One more funny note about Skinner's slip: the last time I played her blooper, one of the two videos served up by YouTube's recommendation engine was Joe Cocker singing "Help From My Friends."   Hopefully Google's smart programmers improve that algorithm.
