Shake Weight reduces TV news to anatomy jokes

May 09, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

There are serious news reports, and then there are serious news reports. 

Thankfully, a recent performance of the KTLA Morning News team falls into the latter category. Tackling the important issue of the Shake Weight, the Los Angeles journalists were reduced to, well, what inevitably happens to everyone when discussing this latest fitness craze: Making anatomy jokes. 

Some money quotes: 

• "I've got a small, white one. Does that make a difference?" 
• "I don't think it's the size of it. It's actually the technique." 
• "Chris, he told me he has a big, black one." 
• "Is that where the cool-down spray comes out?" 

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this was TV news at its finest.
