Five Better Accidental Ringtones Than ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’

Oh, that awkward moment when your stupid phone rings at the most inopportune time, such as the middle of a political debate on the television show you host, as happened Wednesday to the BBC’s Nick Robinson. And ugh, that so much more awkward moment when your ringtone turns out to be Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls.” A great song, but not fit for broadcast on Daily Politics by any stretch. “I’m going to turn it off before the really embarrassing lyrics start,” Robinson said calmly, nipping it in the bud just in time. But such things should not happen. Below, five suggestions for superior, non-embarrassing ringtones Robinson should consider.

1. Vibrate

2. Silent

3. Power off

4. Broken

5. Theme From Peanuts
