Oh, local news reporter. I'm so sorry to single you out. But we need to talk about this joke.

  

A few things here, reporter guy:

1. Soooooo, this was awkward. I feel for you, man. 

2. You probably shouldn't use jokes on air that you got from your six-year-old nephew.

3. You don't have to be funny. I get it: being funny is fun! But you also have a job that actually is just about reporting facts, even if those facts are about a local sports team called the "Mothus Dawes Hotties."

4. Perhaps most importantly, if you are going to make a joke on the news, it shouldn't be about eating off of a butthole.

5. See point 4 above.
