When a weather segment begins with this kind of intro: "I'm Metta World Peace. I used to be named something else, but I forgot," you know you're in for more highs than lows in the comedy department.

The Los Angeles Lakers star (we haven't forgotten he was Ron Artest) took a whirl at giving the weather on CTV Vancouver, and made the PacNW's wet skies a little more exciting. As in: "Victoria: She sounds hot, but she's actually cold."

Okay, so for those totally unfamiliar with Western Canadian geography--and, perhaps like World Peace, the Celsius scale--Victoria is the capital of British Columbia. And at 12 degrees she's not exactly cold--more like chilly (that's about 56 degrees Fahrenheit).

Unfortunately for World Peace, he probably won't get to do the weather here in L.A. since we tend to prefer our weather folks to be busty babes. But we do know that the Fox 11 morning news show needs a seat filled. Hmmm.
