Warning: Might not be safe for work

CNN. The most trusted name in...bathroom comedy?

During a report on student protests in London the cable news network inexplicably began showing video of the infamous explosive diarrhea scene from the movie Dumb and Dumber. Awkward.

CNN has declined to comment on the goof. But a network insider confirmed what Mediaite already dug up: that the clip was intended to introduce a subsequent segment on digestive diseases, which aired as planned.

We're glad we weren't in that control room. Talk about the s--t hitting the fan.
