KREM Weather ‘Slip’ Goes Viral

A slip of the tongue in a KREM weather report has turned into a viral sensation of the day. In the video clip, posted on Gawker this morning, weather anchor and reporter Danielle Grant is giving the weeklong weather report: “…and then the weekend — so far, so good. It should be in the 40s, so slow and slutty — slutty? — steady wins the race.” The viral appeal, of course, is that it’s a forecast covering Valentine’s Day, even though the funny part was actually about the following weekend/Lisa Wanaanen, Inlander. More here.

Question: Are you surprised by this slip of the tongue by weather reporter Danielle Grant? Or more surprised that newscasters don't suffer more slips of the tongue?
