Every time the weatherman slips up, the anchorman is waiting to mock him. (1:32)

BUT THERE'S SOMETHINGTHAT HAPPENS ON LOCAL NEWS,

THAT I FIND...DEEPLY DISTURBING.

YOU HAVE YOUR ANCHORMAN,HE OSTENSIBLY "ANCHORS"THE BROADCAST.

YOU ALSO HAVEYOUR WEATHERMAN,

HE'S TRYING TOPREDICT THE WEATHER.

HE'S JUST A GUY, TRYINGTO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY,DO HIS JOB...

SOMETIMES, HE MAKES MISTAKES,AS WE ALL DO !

HE'S A WEATHER MAN,NOT A WEATHER MACHINE.

BUT THE ANCHORMAN...HE FEELS HE HAS EVERY RIGHTTO MOCK THE WEATHERMAN,

ON TELEVISION,

IN FRONT OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE,EVERY TIME THE GUY SLIPS UP.

THE ANCHORMAN'S JUSTWAITING FOR IT TO HAPPEN !

"SAY PHIL, IT SEEMS YOUDROPPED THE BALL THE OTHER DAY.

"TOO BAD IT WASN'T A"SNOWBALL", HA-HA..."

THE WEATHERMAN JUST TAKES IT,JUST LIES DOWN AND TAKES IT.

LIKE A DOG BEING BEATENWITH A HANGER !

IT MAKES ME MAD.

JUST ONCE I WANT HIM TOTURN ON THE ANCHORMAN,

"HOW DARE YOU,YOU IGNORANT IMBECILE !

"YOU SIT BEHIND A DESK,READING THINGS THAT HAVEALREADY HAPPENED,

"I'M TRYING TOPREDICT THE FUTURE !"
