Fox 45 weatherman Jamie Simpson, in Dayton, Ohio, got fed up with his viewing audience when they complained about a special tornado report interrupting a broadcast of “The Bachelorette.”
Dayton is tornado country and they’d been having a lot of them: “This is a dangerous situation, okay?” Simpson said. Yeah, man, but, like, y’know, you interrupted the program!
The tornado warning had only just begun when Bachelorette viewers began to hit the social media with their gripes. The weatherman could hardly believe it.
I am not persuaded that there’s any such word as bachelorette in the English language; and if there is, there shouldn’t be.
Anyway, Bachelorette fans wanted the network to stop the tornado warnings and go back to the show. Sort of like people in Pompeii complaining about the lictors interrupting a gladiatorial swordfight to warn them that Mt. Vesuvius was erupting. And getting booed for it.
No quokkas were involved in the incident in Dayton.
