Shaq Tells Barkley “You Kissed Dick in the Mouth” on TV (Video)

Shaq Saying "You Kissed Dick in the Mouth"

Shaquille O’Neal is God’s greatest gift to television because you never know exactly what he’s going to say, and he’s rich enough not to care.

On a recent TNT Inside the NBA segment, Shaq stretched the limits of TNT standards and practices by saying “you kissed Dick in the mouth” to co-host Charles Barkleynot once but several times.

How did he get away with such a thing? It’s because he was actually referring to NBA ref Dick Bavetta, who did indeed get a kiss from Sir Charles during the 2007 All-Star Weekend. Regardless of context, Shaq clearly relished the opportunity to say the phrase several times on television, much to the discomfort of those that were sharing the screen with him.

I’ve seen the video below of Shaq delightedly saying “you kissed Dick in the mouth” to Charles Barkley several times, and I have to say, it gets funnier every single time. Also priceless is Barkley’s initial reaction to the comment—he clearly knew exactly what Shaq was talking about, even if no one at home did.

Here’s the video:
