Pat Collins and His Snow Stick

Local news is ridiculous. And we love it!

Were you aware there was a thing called Pat Collins‘ Snow Stick that is featured on NBC 4′s evening news programme? Were you also aware that this Stick has it’s own Twitter handle, @PatsSnowStick. We aren’t exactly clear why, but we believe it is used for measuring snowmen’s genetalia. We think? Actually we made that up -though if it were our Snow Stick, it would definitely be put to more phallic uses than just measuring snow. But to each his own.

Two things are for sure though, 1) Pat Collins loves his Snow Stick, and 2) Pat Collins has a bullet-proof contract and cannot be fired.

Witness the joys of Pat Collins’ Snow Stick In Action Below!

Washingtonian‘s Employs Unique Butt Phrasing

In a brief story bearing the headline, “Is It Jim Vance’s Suits?” Washingtonian media writer Harry Jaffe takes a crack in the magazine’s August edition at answering why NBC4 dominates the local news ratings. The question isn’t necessarily answered, though the colorful writer wonders whether it’s the aforementioned suits, Pat Collins‘ “quirky hats” or else just the “sheer number of familiar faces.” Jaffe then tosses in a bizarre dirty line that baffled us. He writes, “WUSA9 comes in third and Fox 5 brings it up the rear.”

Really, Jaffe, up the rear? Bravo on getting that through editing.
