Sensing that the image would inevitably go viral, Houston NBC-affiliate KPRC recently posted a screenshot on its Facebook page of a man who appears to be taking a leak in the station’s weather garden, feet behind chief meteorologist Frank Billingsley.
“Since this will go viral any way, we might as well let you know it’s not what you think,” KPRC wrote on its Facebook page, posting the above photo. “That guy is an electrical contractor stringing wires in our weather garden. In case you’re wondering, yep, we’re mortified and laughing at the same time and we picked this frame specifically because Frank’s pose is just the cherry on top of it all.”
KPRC asked its Facebook audience to come up with captions for the awkward photo. Among the entries…
“Another scorcher today folks. Be sure to keep the plants properly hydrated.”
“These watering restrictions make you do what ya gotta do to keep the garden looking pretty.”
“Frank, can you give me a hand?”
