That's Some Bad Breath

From an MSN Gossip piece about the singer John Mayer:

Mayer then deconstructs the flick's prototypical jock, Troy: "He's good-looking, rocks a period-relative badass Mustang convertible and he's a total [male part of the anatomy that rhymes with 'tick'). All we can do from the moment Troy enters the frame is to wait with baited breath to see Troy lose and the Goonies win."

Unless he's been eating herring, that should be bated breath. Bated means "held" breath. Fish breath is something else, entirely.
