The TWSS Archives: Tennessee Weather Report

Date: May 1, 2010
Time: 11PM
Location: Tennessee CBS Affiliate
Description: Local weather forecaster track’s weather system’s movement in relation to potential storms in area with common broadcasters’ light pen technique used most often in weather reporting and sports reporting, but in this particular evening’s broadcast the weather forecaster inadvertently draws shapes that when viewed together appear to be male genitalia. This is a rare but prime example of the NON-VERBAL TWSS. Due to the fact that neither the weather forecaster nor his fellow newscasters (off-camera) make any acknowledgement of said genitalia imagery, it is also a classic instance of TWSS Dramatic Irony.
