Massachusetts meteorologist Pete Bouchard raised some eyebrows last week while giving viewers a rundown on snowfall totals in various Bay State municipalities.
“In Princeton, we picked up 9 inches of snow, Billerica had 7,” he began.
“The biggest amount that I could find … almost as big as me,” Bouchard said as he stepped closer to the camera, shifting his eyes sideways, “About nine inches.”
Chris Wayland, his employer and Channel 7 General Manager, chalked it up to a (huge!) misunderstanding and technical difficulty with the weatherman’s monitor.
“When he was looking at his monitor, he was cut in half and he thought that’s what was happening over the air,” Wayland said. “To imply that’s what his comment was, what people are suggesting, is ridiculous. He would never do that.”
Do you buy that explanation? Or was this guy pulling a Robin from How I Met Your Mother and saying ridiculous $h!t on the air just to see if people are watching?
Either way, it’s pretty hilarious and we’re kind of jealous.
Of the snow, that is. We enjoy skiing.
