Open Mouth, Insert Foot

In Joplin yesterday, the guest preceding me on KSNF's Living Well was from Mercy Hospital. Angie Saborito's interview is here. She was with another gentlemen from the hospital as we were all waiting in the break room.

Anyway, as the producer came back to escort them to the studio, I said to Angie, "Break a leg!" A look of horror came over both of their faces!

I guess that was the wrong thing to say to two people who work in the medical profession.

"Break a leg" is a show business expression that means "good luck." There is even a song about it from Mel Brooks' The Producers.
