Just under the wire for April, but a bit too late to make this month's news blooper reel, KHOU 11 Chief Meteorologist David Paul recently faced one of the worst case scenarios for any on-air news person outside of uttering the words "fucking shit" during the first two seconds of your very first newscast.

Paul was about to deliver the News at 5 weather report when he suddenly came down with a serious case of the hiccups.

Professional prognosticator that he is, Paul refused to let a little involuntary contraction of the diaphragm get in the way of his green screen pointing and weather clicker clicking, and proceeded to do nearly three full minutes of forecasting, hiccuping all the way.

They don't give out medals for this sort of bravery, but if they did, that would be incredibly stupid.
