So-called “meteorologist”, RTE’s Evelyn Cusack, stunned viewers this week when she spouted pseudo-scientific clap-trap which flies in the face of Irish traditions.

Cusack, who holds a degree in Mathematics and a Masters in Physics (wishy-washy disciplines at best) was delivering the weather forecast on Friday night when she made the outlandish claim that predicting the weather far into the future is an inexact science, as is relying on analysis from dogs and JohnJoe from the pub’s false hip.

“This just proves what I’ve thought for a long time. We don’t need weather forecasters” said one member of the public we spoke to.

“It’s a well-known fact that dogs predict earthquakes. Evelyn is just grasping at straws trying to debunk that one. The Japanese version of Crufts was on the day of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, otherwise they would have been grand. I’ll get my weather from Gerry in the corner shop, like I always have”.

Concerns were also raised by Cusack’s mention of a quote from noted physicist and godless heathen, Carl Sagan.

“It’s an obvious endorsement of godlessness and a reckless need to look to the stars in the sky rather than the stars in Hollywood. Where would you be going with that? I don’t watch television to have someone tell me their opinion is better than mine. They should replace her with an extended Angelus” claimed Gerry, from the corner shop.

  1. We don’t need weather forecasts any more.

    Our Glorious Leaders have delivered us from the Bailout – we will have perpetual sunshine and manna will fall from Heaven.

    Mayo will re-emerge as a powerhouse in Gaelic Football, in vocations to the Priesthood and to the Garda Siochana.

    That Cusack woman will be sent to the observatory in Achill Island where she will extrapolate weather trends from the level of flatulence in sheep.
