What's your idea about it? Also, please give us as much relevant (and maybe irrelevant) info on the car as possible. There may be something you have done to it recently to cause this.

It's a cable throttle, so look for issues with the cable. Rust, sharp bends, stuck floormats....

Make sure the cable is in place in the throttle body. Sometimes it comes out or gets stuck in the actuator when you slam the gas pedal leaving the throttle stuck open.
