KWQC Meteorologist Fights Off Laughing Fit After Depends Joke

KWQC meteorologist Greg Dutra fought off a fit of laughter on the air after he made a “Depends” joke during his forecast, which aired immediately after a commercial for the adult diapers (video above).

“Well, your weather forecast today ‘depends…’” Dutra said at the top of his forecast, trailing off as his colleagues at the anchor desk started chiding him for making the joke. “As soon as I saw it, I was like, it’s stacked right in front of me. I got to. It might be my only chance!” [h/t Los Angeles Daily News]
