When the Internet was still just a twinkle in Al Gore’s eye, some enterprising media innovators had already seized on its broadcasting possibilities by presenting Naked News. That is, the real news read by news anchors who don’t wear any clothes. If you’re going to have to process hurricanes and train wrecks, robberies and homicides — goes the thinking — you might as well have something to soften the edge. Like flesh.
The Funny Or Die people have decided to the the same thing for weather as nudity did for news — add a little angle. (Though for a much broader demographic!) With the new Funny Or Die weather app, you get a shot of funny with your forecast. It’s like a joke-a-day calendar filled with one-liners making a silver lining for your cloudy days. But will they add naked joking to the weather soon? Will Ferrell — a Funny Or Die co-founder — is an old pro at bringing the nudity. For now you’ll have to trust that “Funny Or Die Weather will blow the doors off your stupid, boring, old weather app.”
