Boy oh boy, what a crummy year, huh? A quick glance at the Wikipedia rundown of all the biggest news events of the year confirms that absolutely nothing good came of 2012.

That's not to say the news itself wasn't worth watching.

Quite the contrary: As this compilation of the year's best local news bloopers clearly proves, 2012 was a banner year for people fucking up and/or acting really strange on camera.

Here's hoping that with society's steadily growing affinity for mean-spirited schadenfreude and the increasing permanence of Internet content, 2013 will be even bloopier.
