Fresh off this local reporter's inadvertent drawing of a penis, we give you CNN offering up a report on dildo extinction.

In an hilarious slip-up Tuesday, CNN International anchor Jonathan Mann reported on the plight of dildos and how years of, ahem, flaccid human stewardship has driven them to extinction.

Mann was speaking with University of Arizona professor John Wiens about climate change and a recent study indicating animals have to evolve at a rate 10,000 times faster than they currently do to avoid extinction in a warmer world.

Unfortunately for Wiens, the weighty topic was overshadowed when an apparent Freudian slip from Mann confused dildos and dodos in the middle of the segment.

"Now, extinctions -- I don't have to tell you -- have been part of the natural history of the world for millennia," Mann interjects, leading up to the sentence's climax: "Manmade extinctions have even happened before. I guess we hunted the dildo into extinction."

Seconds later, the visibly flustered anchor acknowledges what he'd just said and backtracks, "the DODO, rather! Forgive me … I'm having trouble with my words today."

The blooper earned a spot on David Letterman Monday night, in a joke segment titled, "CNN: The Most Trusted Name In News."

More like a dil-doh!
