Oops, Mitt Romney, Dwyane Wade, an umpire and David Nalbandian crapped their pants

Saturday Night Live gave us the phrase “Oops, I crapped my pants” in the early 2000s and it was a fine line to trot out when something in your life went slightly wrong.
 
Turned the ignition twice in your car? “Oops, I crapped my pants.”

Stubbed your toe on the top step? “Oops, I crapped my pants.”

Crapped your pants in class? “Oops, I crapped my pants.”

Unfortunately, “Oops I craped my pants” has now gone the way of “Where’s the beef?” and “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up.”

It has long-since been retired.

What’s the closest thing thing we’ve seen to these in the past 10 years?

Well, I could of course go all Borat on you, “very nice!” or toss out any number of Dave Chappelle lines, “I’m Rick James, Bitch!”

But there is just one thing and one thing only that keeps popping into my head and I can’t get it out. You guessed it:

The problem with the 1-877-KARS-4-KIDS jingle (and no, that is not Jerry Sandusky singing the hook) is that you can’t really quote it without singing, which is definitely a problem if you want to compete with the all-timers in the catchphrase category.

So what will be the next great catchphrase that everyone quotes for three months and then gets annoyed by in the following three be?

Well, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (shocking that it’s taken him this long) provided us with a possible doozy the other day:

Thank you, Mitt. We’re forever in debt. Might just be enough for me to think about voting for you for four seconds and then not.

It’s just gold and you could go one of any 10 different ways with it.

Did your buddy get a new pair of white Nikes? “Where’d you get those, you get them at WaWa’s?”

Your girlfriend asks you why you got home so late? “… I was at WaWa’s.”

Deciding where to go to dinner? “Let’s go to WaWa’s … it’s amazing.”

Now, this won’t derail Mitt’s campaign by any means. It just plays into the whole “robot” image and some weirdos may even find it charming.

Still, this was a big “Oops, I crapped my pants” moment for Mitt. Or maybe we should just transition the phrase for “what the hell was I thinking” to “Sorry, I was at WaWa’s.”

In an amazing act of timeliness, there were several “Sorry, I was at WaWa’s” moments that took place in the sports world the past few days:

And don’t forget to watch this humiliating “WaWa” moment from MLB with the home plate umpire falling flat on his face.
