Weather Channel Forecast: Hott and Stormy

The Weather Channel has found itself in the eye of a hurricane of sorts. Marny Stanier Midkiff, a former high-ranking weatherwoman at TWC, is suing, saying her dismissal was sexist and age-ist. Her claim is she and other aging weather chicks at the network are being nudged aside for younger, more nubile on-air talent possessing a different set of "assets," apparantly easily displayed by low-cut blouses and tight skirts.

Multiple choice wise-ass commentary follows. Choose for yourself!

A) How could something so wrong feel so right?

B) What is this world coming to? After all, there's nothing sexier than a dowdy, middle-aged woman delivering the mild spores report.

C) It's a step in the right direction, but until they hire Lindsay Lohan, I'm not watching.

D) Their new approach has had some success, lowering the age of the average Weather Channel viewer to 78.

E) No confirmation to the rumor that the male meteorologists will now be required to wear loincloths.

1 other geekspeak:

    OK reality time. MEN WILL WATCH WEATHER FROM OTHER PLANETS....if Linsey Lohan delivers it braless in a camisole.
