What's the silliest thing you've ever unintentionally said?
For me, it was when I was in the seventh grade, in science class. We were playing Trivial Pursuit on a Friday, mostly just divided into teams and keeping score on the board. I was incredibly shy, but I was damned good at that game, so I came up with a lot of answers.
The question came up: "How many times a year do penguins mate?"
Common sense said that the answer was one, or else why ask the question? So we answered, and got it right.
Before I realized I'd said it aloud, I murmured, "So THAT'S why they walk so funny..."
In the silence that followed, and from the utterly shocked look on my teacher's face, I realized I'd spoken loud enough for the entire class to hear...

I can honestly say I've never unintentionally said something silly. _Intentionally_ is another story.
