Weekend Caption Contest™

It's Friday, which means it's time for the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™. As a tribute to the inability of weathermen everywhere to accurately forecast the weather (especially those predict anywhere from no snow to 10 inches of snow in the same forecast), I offer you a blank slate to create your own forecast, or whatever else you want. I'm picking on WRC's Bob Ryan, but I'm pretty sure you can imagine your local weathercaster in his place...

WRC (NBC4) Weatherman Bob Ryan Caption Contest

If you're are going to put words in the announcers mouth indicate that, and if you are putting text on the background indicated that as well. Here's a couple lame examples of how you might enter:

Announcer - "Here's you forecast for Wednesday which looks just like the Tuesday forcast.."

Text - Night and morning low clouds.

Text - Warning! The guy on the left is a bigger tool than he appears to be.
I will put the text for winning entries into the picture for the winners announcement. Winners will be announced late Sunday night.

Update: Winners announced. Comments are now closed.

I watched Bob Ryan's 5:25 p.m. forecast religiously, for years. Then I left the D.C. area for central Texas, so that I'd never again have to listen to his overblown promises of humongous blizzards about to paralyze the D.C. area. What a letdown it was when D.C. was able to conduct "business as usual."

Anyway, here's my entry:

Announcer - There's a 50-percent chance that Tuesday wil follow Monday and precede Wednesday.
