Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Carson Daly, host of “The Voice,” has apologized for a homophobic joke he made on his radio show while discussing the recent JetBlue pilot meltdown.

“Most of the people were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas,” Daly said of the passengers who had to restrain the pilot. “So there’s like a bunch of dudes and well trained dudes.”

“My luck, it would be like, this is the flight going to pride in San Francisco,” Daly said, referring to an annual gay pride celebration. He continued, using a stereotypical lilt, “We’re headed down to Vegas for the floral convention. [Speaking in his own voice] ‘Can we get a little help up here with the pilot?’ Oh, no. No, thank you.”

He apologized for the joke on Twitter: “This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake. I sincerely apologize.” Daly also released a longer apology. (TMZ; @carsonjdaly)
