A thank you note of epic proportions

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.

He continues:

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.
