Anchor accidentally hits on weather forecaster during broadcast8/23/2012
"Chatting" by any other name can get you in hot water with the human resources police, especially if that name is "canoodling." CTV news anchor Andrew Johnson tried to ad-lib some small talk after a news story that mentioned couples canoodling in Union Bay by suggesting he and meteorologist Astrid Braunschmidt engage in a little canoodling before the weather. Instead, she delivered a stern warning. "We're not going to be canoodling," the astonished forecaster said, as a producer barked maydays into the clueless anchor's ear. Johnson, who said he thought canoodle meant chat, will probably get sentenced either to sensitivity training or a couple hours of vocabulary homework with a dictionary. You stay classy, Vancouver Island.
Be honest: did you know what 'canoodling' meant?
