WATCH: It’s Not the Size of The Dog, Birmingham Anchor Insults Weatherman

When the morning anchor team for Birmingham, AL, CBS affiliate WIAT were talking about a local doggy dress up contest, anchor Gina Redmond let loose a double entendre that hit meteorologist Mark Prater right in his manly bits.

“Mark has a little weiner,” said Redmond, wondering about what it took to win such a contest.

“What have you dressed him in Mark?” said co anchor Stephen Hauck. “Come on. Be honest.”

“Long johns,” Prater answered, looking like he knew awkwardness had been the real winner.
