And finally, to Austin, Texas, where a weatherman named Albert Ramon stopped by a fourth grade classroom to talk about his job.
And his lecture was so riveting that a student wrote him a thank-you note of epic proportions.
Here it is:
Dear Mr. Ramon,
Thank you for coming to our school and teaching us about the weather.
Some day when I become supreme Ultra-Lord of the universe, you will live in my 200-story castle where unicorn servants will
feed you doughnuts off their horns.
You’re more awesome than a monkey wearing a tuxedo made out of bacon riding a cyborg unicorn. And in case you didn’t know, that’s pretty dang sweet.
In Los Angeles, looking for my doughnut-serving unicorn.
