KTLA Weatherman Tricked Into Saying 'Hugh Janus' On-Air

Henry, please beware of calls from Alotta Fagina. 
Mediabistro captured footage of a veteran Los Angeles weatherman unwittingly falling for a prankster's ruse to get him to say a "naughty name on-air."

Good-spirited KTLA meteorologist Henry DiCarlo wished a happy 10th birthday to "Hugh Janus" on live TV.

DiCarlo then stopped and looked horrified because his news colleague Chris Schauble began laughing.

"Uh, I think it's one of those trick names, and you fell for it," Schauble told DiCarlo.

"I got punked," the weatherman replied. "Hopefully, there's not a 10-year-old, really, with that name out there."

No word if the the ruse was an inside job.

Now, the video:

Atop the Ozark Plateau, the buckle of the Bible Belt, such shenanigans never happen. Radio stations always use the censored versions of songs and TV output is full of sound lapses where the audio output is turned off while the offensive word is muted.


At least the property taxes are low and a shanty, a humble hovel, can be bought for $25,000. Of course, though monetary costs are low there IS a HIGH price to pay for being surrounded by a HUGE herd of sub-humans.


ACCCKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sniff.

Mark DeCarlo is a man child. You should see his temper tantrum on YouTube.
