As this clip from CNN proves.

Is an asteroid the result of global warming?

What’s coming our way? Is this [asteroid] an effect of, perhaps, global warming? Or is this just some meteoric occasion?

Anyone, especially on live television or radio, can slip up and say something inane, but this anchor’s demeanor makes me believe she really is an empty-headed bleach blonde reading the evening news.

Edit: changed link and added quote

I’ll bet Nye laughed till milk came out his nose at that one. Makes you wonder if she was homeschooled or missed the astronomy class discussion on asteroids. No sweety, not hemorrhoids, ASTEROIDS!

Why does it seem like Bill Nye gets more than his fair share of such quesions?

That’s pretty funny.  Sad.  But funny.

How many grams are in 2.5 kilograms?
Taco?

God bless America.

EDIT
I replaced some letters with others.  And maybe even some punctuation!
