The crew at NewsBeFunny know the truth: There’s absolutely nothing funnier than an dysfunctional news broadcast. This month’s snow-centric round-up of hilarious reporter flubs might be even funnier than last month’s, focusing primarily on slips, both verbal and physical – from wacky pratfalls in snow-covered streets to accidental on-air cursing that would make Ron Burgundy blush.
In one early highlight, a Rochester man creatively compares the harshness of below-freezing temperatures to the diminishing returns of one particularly troubled pop star: “I compare winter to be the Justin Bieber of seasons,” he says. “It was kind of cute and exciting when it first started out, and now it’s a bit obnoxious and should probably just stay in Canada.”
Elsewhere, a reporter questions the sexual habits of “slutty snow,” a segment on the Valentine’s Day rush goes awry with a Freudian slip (“If you’re making last-minute dinner plans, you may have a hard time getting in some of the titties”) and a field reporter slips and falls into a muddy stream.
However, the funniest moment is an exception to the winter theme, with an entertainment reporter confusing guest Samuel L. Jackson with another famous African-American actor, Laurence Fishburne.
“We all don’t look alike!”, Jackson says, with a hint of Pulp Fiction rage in his voice. “I’m the other guy! There’s more than one black guy doing a commerical! I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy!”
