By now, you have surely seen the above clip already in which Kirstie Alley falls (well, is dropped) during her performance of the Rumba! on last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. Afterwards, her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy claimed that his leg just gave out and described it like a terrible Charlie horse. How embarrassing for both of them! Although, more embarrassing for her, obviously. Actually, that might not be true. I mean, he is a professional dancer, so he’s supposed to be able to, you know, not drop people on their butts. Kirstie Alley, meanwhile, writes things like “RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN TO GET A FREE ROOT BEER FLOATTTTTTTTTT” on Twitter, so she knows her way around a pair of flushed cheeks. Also, everyone is acting as if this is a shocking event, as if that show was not an Embarrassment Factory. Anyway, for this week’s Caption Contest, what did Kirstie Alley say in the moment right before she fell? Or, for that matter, what did Maksim Chmerkovkiy whisper into her ear right before he dropped her? “FALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!” You do it.

Winner will receive special mention in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. BRAVA! (Video via WarmingGlow.)
