Spider Scares Bejesus Out of Weatherman

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A weatherman at a West Virginia news station was surprised by a large image of a spider on his weather map.

Video shows WOWK 13`s Bryan Hughes conducting the weather report before being startled by the image of the spider after the screen transitioned from a map to live feed of a local storm."


A weatherman doesn`t have to be handsome, articulate or intelligent, he needs only to be cool and collected as he reports on tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and other acts of God.

A meteorologist who wets his drawers and almost feints when an image of a spider appears on his weather map is an embarrassment to his profession, and he should be summarily fired.

I`m not suggesting that Hughes should commit ritual suicide, but he should never (ever) be seen on TV again.
