Crime & Punishment: CT Weatherman Accidentally Eats Cat Vomit
"I ate cat vomit," declared weatherman Scot Haney on WFSB's morning newscast, adding, "right here on television!" Minutes earlier, the Hartford station's on-air banter had gotten a little weird when Haney spotted what he thought was Grape-Nuts cereal left on the studio floor and couldn't resist grabbing a handful and stuffing it in his mouth. "A little soggy," the man-baby forecaster said, as his colleagues looked on with bafflement and waited for the station's traffic map to load. After a commercial break, Haney appeared holding his shoe, sharing his epiphany that he had stepped in his cat's upchuck and dragged all the way to work. "I thought it was Grape-Nuts because it looked just like it," he explained. "My cat threw up and I must have stepped in it and that's what I ate!" Haney would not — for the love of God — stop, and took the substance into his palm and held it up to the camera, whining, "It's in pieces right here! I thought it was Grape-Nuts!" Come back, Geoff Fox; you're not such a weirdo and all is forgiven.
