Next Thing You Know, It'll Be Jack Mefaster Who's Turning One

Anyone who caught the last half hour of Thursday's "Live at Daybreak" witnessed some of the program's worst moments since the end of the Thom Knight era. For starters, the normally appealing Malorie Maddox apparently came to work dressed as England's Queen Elizabeth II. Either that or she was under the impression that it was "Dress Like Grandma" Day.

Then Jim Siedlecki, looking and acting even more like Gomer Pyle than usual, spiced up his banter with meteorologist Scott Akin by blurting out, "Wow, there are lots of computers here!" Yeah, Jim—holy shit—there are cameras, too!

The highlight, however, came during the normally excruciating "First Birthdays" segment. Reading what was clearly a prank submission that got by the producer, the already off-kilter anchors announced that one youngster "enjoys playing with his wiener dog."

As the program wrapped up, Maddox salivated as she mentioned that pro tennis player Andy Roddick was scheduled to visit the station later in the day. We can only imagine Roddick's consternation upon seeing that a blond-haired Ruth Bader-Ginsburg lookalike was batting her eyelashes at him.

Speaking of pulling one over on a TV station. A few years ago, I called every TV station in town, and informed them that the Bukake Festival was cancelled.

For those who do not know, "bukake" is a japanese word for facial, and not in the mascara and rouge sense. Think porn.

When asked, I said that the Greek Bukake Festival is an event that celebrates the Greek culture, and that we were scheduled to have 300-400 people coming in.

Every station except KM3 (probably laziness, rather than catching my joke) ran it on the scroller. My friends and I had a drinking party with this.

I think there were a lot of Japanese women breathing a sign of relief that night.

Why can't WOWT show more of Courtny Gerrish? Not only is she the best looking anchor/ reporter in the area, she is also the most talented at her job.

Bu--kake fest cancellation made it on air...funny. Funny.

Thursday? The day where Mal actually had a hairstyle? D00d, I don't know what you're thinking--that was the best I've seen her look.

Mal was smokin hot Thursday, in an 1880's sort of way.

No we don't. Care to enlighten us?

She looks chuncky on TV

I've seen her in a couple bars with The City Council President....

I saw that broadcast, and I was appalled. Mallorie looked like such a slut by being on TV and showing her ankles and such.

Only ladies of the evening and ne'er-do-wells show ankle. Victorian-era ladies know that knee-high knicker boots are appropriate when attending a societal event.

Harlots and heathens, I say to thee!

wow, i'd never expect Malorie to fall into the fourth string, especially when it comes to Dan Welch...

Do you think Mal has a smaller version of Carl Malden's nose?
