Though to most it's a glorious snoozefest, sometimes the Los Angeles City Council meetings provide moments of levity thanks to the many colorful characters who sign up to speak, or, in some cases, serve as elected.

Earlier today, it seems someone with an albeit childish sense of humor might have pulled off a little prank at Councilman Dennis Zine's expense. Zine, who ran today's meeting, called for a speaker who, not surprisingly, didn't show up.

That speaker: Good ol' Mike Hunt.
