the story today
Dear BBC, I know that the story is the story. But do you have to structure every story around the story that it’s a story, & advise me that you’re storying the story, EVEN WHEN IT’S JUST THE FUCKING WEATHER? I’m fucking storied up to here with the fucking story. Really. I just want to know if it’s going to rain. I do not want to know that it’s going to be “a story of rain”. I do not want the story of the rain. I want to know if it’s going to rain or not. Anything else is meaningless nonsense to me in this context. Rain or no rain? Be careful how you answer this. Because you are a weather forecaster. Get it?
Today’s story has been one of bollocks all over the British Isles, with more bollocks, I’m afraid to say, to come.

Maybe those green screens forecasters spend so much time in front of are damaging brain cells? I live on a much larger landmass (Canada) where forecasting for the entire country is typically done from one location and our government views our public broadcaster as an evil socialist entity. Looking out the window is generally better indicator of what the the weather is or might be.
