Comedian buys The Weather Channel
« on: March 23, 2018, 08:00:28 PM »
So back in 2015, when The Weather Channel was not part of IBM's purchase of WeatherUnderground and other weather-relates entities, the television channel continued on its merry way until now. A comedian has just purchased it. So perhaps it will be entertaining and funny rather than bloated and non-responsive, like WU has become.

Dear Blick, and WeatherCat users who cannot believe their eyes!

So back in 2015, when The Weather Channel was not part of IBM's purchase of WeatherUnderground and other weather-relates entities, the television channel continued on its merry way until now. A comedian has just purchased it. So perhaps it will be entertaining and funny rather than bloated and non-responsive, like WU has become.

But, but, but, . . . . . .  Surely you jest! . . . . . . . .  :o

Alas, a quick check of the web confirms this extremely bizarre development.

If someone had been able to get me the news headlines of today and shown them to me 2 years ago, I wouldn't have believed any of it.  Gasp, I still can't!

Absolutely, positively, beyond any possible doubt, . . . . . the Second Coming is way overdue!!

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

Comedians buy the Weather Channel, clowns become president... anything is possible these days.  [rolleyes2]
