News Anchor Misunderstands Canoodling – Suggests it to Weather Reporter [VIDEO]

Lesson of the day, if you’re not 100 percent sure what a word means, you probably shouldn’t use it — especially on live TV.

All Canadian TV news anchor, Andrew Johnson did was the same thing he’s done countless times before. He waited for the light-hearted news piece to wrap up, then segue into the weather report with some cheesy comment. This time, it made him a viral star.

After an elderly lady used the word canoodling, Johnson suggested that he and weather anchor, Astrid Braunschmidt “canoodle” before she gave the forecast. In case you don’t know the meaning either, Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary defines canoodle as, “pet; fondle”, and provides the example, “Two lovers were canoodling on a park bench.” Not necessarily something you suggest to a coworker on live television.

Watch the reaction on both their faces, Braunschmidt looks almost disgusted by the thought, while Johnson lets out a nervous laugh as his producers clue him in as to what he just did. The fun begins around the 30 second mark.

I’ve been there dude, I’ve been there. As recently as two weeks ago actually. Although in my case, it wasn’t a matter of misusing a word, but saying the wrong word which totally changed the scenario I was trying to describe.

It was during the Mater Dei versus Heritage Hills game back on August 17th while doing color commentary for our sister-station, Newstalk 1280. Mater Dei quarterback, Jace Hartz threw a nice touchdown pass to a receiver in the endzone. The guy was covered by a defender on either side, so Hartz threw the pass low forcing his receiver to squat down a bit as he caught the ball in his gut, or as I said it live on the air — “in his butt.” I quickly corrected myself and moved on, only to have our play-by-play guy, Jimmie Ford say, “It would have been more impressive if he caught in the other place you mentioned.”

The point being, it happens. And when it does, it just proves that we’re all human.
