Flower guy weather man

By Jorge - 2 September 2008 29

This may have been covered before, but what are the views out there on the ABC’s flower-guy weather man?

My 2c? – He should have his own comedic gardening show.

He reminds me of Edwin Maher, former ABC Melbourne weather guy. He was famous for having a different pointer each day. people used to send them in from everywhere. He’s now a newsreader for a English language network in China.

[ED – that would be Mark Carmody who can be a bit of a shock the first time but seems to grow on people]

Heh! can you imagine Virginia’s reaction if he wore THAT?! And the camera men. And all the flies. And he’d need a trolley to move it around.

lets hope he goes for a Rafflesia arnoldii at some point. no flower is to big for his style.

I missed the flower. When the hibiscus comes out, we might offer him one. They’re Hibiscus Meuschertos (spelt wrong), and they are huge, bigger than dinner plates.
I imagine he’ll be wearing dahlias when they’re out, and they’re pretty big and inappropriate.

Good on him!

superb flower today, nearly large enough.

Think we can lobby him to actually wear an actual sunflower one day? That’d meet JB’s requirements as being bigger than Carmody’s noggin.

No, this has never been covered before. Thanks for raising the issue.

I’m now giggling like a schoolgirl… thanks HC!

He went overseas a few weeks back, for 6 weeks I think.

Virginia mentioned one night he is on leave (again!) overseas somewhere. He tends to be on holidays a lot.

Forry-ard … oops, you knew what I meant. 😉
