More News Anchors Should Be Autistic

This video started to make the rounds on Friday, but I saved it for today because I like my weekly dosage of awkwardness on Mondays. Also because I have the blogging response time of a lobotomy patient.

Anyway, as Catherine Shreves of ABC26 in New Orleans finishes up her report on the G-Shot — a medical procedure that supposedly amplifies a woman’s ability to have an orgasm — anchor Michael Hill helpfully asks, “So she’s enjoying penis a little bit more, is she?” And as much as I enjoy people saying “penis” on television, it’s really not that big of a deal. What I like about the clip is the awkward pause after his too-obvious question. I’d really like it if more news anchors spoke like autistic children. Or hell, just make the news anchor an autistic child. Make the entire news team have personality disorders. Tell me you wouldn’t want to get sports highlights from someone with Tourette’s.
