Of all the places to see boobs, you’d probably except BBC to be one of the least likely. However, the British Broadcasting Corporation recently shocked viewers when a pair of breasts was spotted on a monitor in the background of a news report. Of course, much speculation went into guessing who they belonged to.

According to E! News, nude scene archival website Mr. Skin identified the pair as part of a scene from True Blood. But that wasn’t before #Photoboobing started trending on Twitter.

The mystery was further put to bed when Anna Paquin stepped up and claimed the boobs as her own.


“Now that I know what u guys were talking about…this some of the funniest shit I’ve seen in a while!!!” she tweeted. “Thanks for the giggle! #FreeTheNipple.”

If you haven’t seen the boobs yet, you can check out this screen grab from BBC’s Twitter account, BBC Newsbeat.

Anna Paquin herself was tickled by the news, Tweeting on Friday that she thought the whole thing was hilarious. (As do we!)

Her timeline quickly filled up with BBC references. Anna clearly wasn’t going to forget #BBCBoobgate that easily. We can’t stop laughing either.

And where there are boobs, there are boob puns. The internet didn’t disappoint.

Here are some of the Anna Paquin-approved, grade-A tweets.

Thanks to Anna for being such a great sport and letting the internet have a laugh at the BBC’s boobie blooper.
