I'm Fred Sherrrrrrman

In the mornings on the way to work I listen to KYW, the local CBS AM news station. If you're not familiar with it, this story won't be funny to you. Heck, even if you are, you may still find it disappointing.

Last week when I was driving in, it was either 25 or 55 past the hour, because Don Lancer was doing the financial news update thing that he does. He went to the analyst that isn't Fred Sherman. The analyst guy (I don't remember his name, sorry analyst guy) started out by saying, "Fifteen-thirty six*". [*All four-digit numbers have been changed because I don't remember them exactly] And he continued: "The year the Swedes introduced the log cabin to America. Also the level the NASDAQ closed at yesterday." Then he went on to say boring financial stuff about the NASDAQ, and then he wrapped up by saying, "Fifteen thirty-six, Fred Sherman's sophomore year of college." He said something else, but I didn't hear him because I was laughing.

When he was done, Don Lancer chuckled and said, "I'm sure Fred will have something to say about that in his next report." I didn't get to hear it, though, because I was at work by then.

AM news reporters crack my shit up.
