Hey non-blue bloods! The van took a hop, skip and a WHUMP! over the atlantic to catch a most royal weather event – a verified prince delivering the forecast for Scotland!
Born to forecast! So sad he ended up being a prince instead. Why, universe, whyyyyy?
yes, it’s true! his highness, prince chaz, fulfilled his dream of saying things like “outbreaks of rain” and “wet, windy conditions” on the bbc. outbreak of clouds? more like outbreak of WHY IS PRINCE CHARLES DOING THE WEATHER? because he owns england and probably scotland, that’s why!
two things i love here: he takes a moment of solitude to study the clicker before he gets started, and he wisecracks about bad weather at his vakay spot, balmoral. and also, everything he says sounds dipped in the snoots. that’s three things!
When we’re in the Van, we think the weather is hilarious. But then again, Froggy’s jokes also crack us up, and we’ve been assured by many people that he’s not really funny. (Sorry Froggy!)
But apparently weather humor is an international phenomenon. Meet Maxi Biewer (pronounced Beaver), Germany’s lovely Weather Expert.
Don't worry! Her beer and bratwurst are just off camera. No sensible German leaves home without them.
Maxi has been the “Wetterfee” or Weather Fairy (totally not sexist) for the German national TV station, RTL, since 1992. During that time, she’s given literally thousands of high quality weather reports. But since those aren’t fun to make fun of, here’s one where she completely fell apart:
For any Van Fans who don’t speak German, the invisible Tickle Fairy flew into her hair while the Silly Face Fairy was dancing behind the camera. And for those of you who do speak German, back us up please.
