Coconut Weather Station - Hawaiian Humor

Although he was a qualified meteorologist, Hopkins ran up a terrible record of forecasting for the TV news program.  He became something of a local joke when a newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he’d been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year.  That kind of notoriety was enough to get him fired.

He moved to another part of the country and applied for a similar job.  The job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position.

Hopkins wrote, “The climate didn’t agree with me.”

At Least the Weathers Not as Shit as Yesterday...

    There was a little regional TV station in Christchurch, New Zealand called “Canterbury TV” (sadly many staff perished when the CTV building totally collapsed in the Feb22nd earthquake in 2011) .
    One day the CTV weatherman (known for his sense of humour and unconventional for TV, casual, friendly manner) was pointing to an area over the Southern Alps, and said:

    … ” and variable winds from the Alps, … “variable: meaning we don’t really have a clue which direction they will be coming from!”

    People LOVED his good humoured honesty and the weather report was often the funniest segment on TV.

    I have to admit though “the climate doesn’t agree with me” has to be the most perfect answer for the situation I’ve ever heard… Brilliant!!!

    I like it!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
