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...

Tsk, tsk. Oh come on, you can do better than that. Don't make me come up with something embarrassing that you've said, Phil. I know there's something more you can come up with... ;)

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