A New Zealand weatherman beamed with pride last week when he expertly pointed out something the average person — you know, who's not a meteorologist — may not know about tornadoes: Sometimes they look like dicks.

The weatherman was reporting on a photo a viewer sent in of a waterspout, the cylindrical vortex that appears over bodies of water. But why bother with the details? The weatherman zoomed out of the photo, asking, "When you take a step back is there anything else you see in this picture?"

As a female news anchor dissolved into giggles, her male colleague said, "Oh, Sam, you didn't have to say that! It's about as subtle as a sledgehammer, mate."

Sam couldn't move on, though, before drawing attention to nature's handiwork.

"There's a lot of detail!" he said. "Well captured."

Given these two meteorologists' antics, it looks like next week's weather forecast is cloudy with a chance of jokes.
