Funniest Quote of the Year, Courtesy of Mike Wilbon

As The Big Lead has indicated, the geniuses at the Washington Post have decided to put Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon on-camera and have them discuss the hot topics of the day. Groundbreaking really.

While the segments about Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams and John Amaechi liking sausage are merely okay, the PTI boys save the best for last.

The funniest segment of the video (and maybe the year) occurs when Tony and Mike talk about the crazy adulterous astronaut lady. Tony waxes about the significance of the story and how astronauts are considered the most respected and courageous people in America. The camera then pans to Mike, who stands there oblivious while eating Grandma's cookies. When Wilbon notices the camera he stares straight into the lens and screams, "She wore a diaper!"

Hilarious. It has to be seen to be believed. (right-hand side, February 7)
