Please move the comma

WIN News anchor Jessica Good happily showed off the perils of putting commas in the wrong place on the autocue during this evening’s pre-recorded weather update.

“Hello again isolated showers, [forecast continues]”

Whilst it was much more amusing than the correct “Hello again, isolated showers [forecast continues]”, unfortunately it sent me in to hysterical laughter and as such I haven’t the faintest clue what the weather forecast is. I don’t even know if “isolated showers” applies to us or some other region.

That said, if you know somebody named Isolated Showers, you might want to ask them to watch WIN Television for the rest of the night. Jessica Good seems to have a message for them.

That’s like a guy by the name of Dan Ingram on the american radio station WABC some time ago who when he read the weather which said “a few brief showers”, his workmates came in while he was to air and threw underpants all over him…briefs meaning undies 🙂
