The news anchor was giving us the upcoming news stories when they got back from commercial and he said, "get the story behind a woman who today fell through a sidewalk grate..."
and then, THEN, here's what he said:
"...and, speaking of grate, weatherman Bill Johnson has a "grate" accu-weather weekend forecast, coming up..."
Please, please, no.
I told this to Sean over IM and here's what we said:
Sean says: (6:12:21 PM)
oh my gosh, what a complete waste of breathe
Sean says: (6:13:11 PM)
why would someone look for a pun like that?
Jen says: (6:13:19 PM)
Jen says: (6:13:31 PM)
and..let's make a joke out of the woman who fell through a grate
Sean says: (6:14:08 PM)
And then I said:
Jen says: (6:14:05 PM)
it's like saying "a 13-year-old boy committed suicide today... And speaking of suicide, you may just want to commit suicide yourself after the scorching hot weekend coming up..."
at the same time Sean sent:
Sean says: (6:15:09 PM)
"And you know what else died today?! High prices for sandals! Never pay too much!"
Sean says: (6:15:21 PM)
yours was better
Jen says: (6:15:37 PM)
Jen says: (6:15:39 PM)
i liked yours
Sean says: (6:15:49 PM)
Ha ha. Anyway... man, i hate the news here. Ridiculous.
