Stephanie Edwards is a dirty girl! KTLA 5 Rose Parade broadcast

I had the KTLA Channel 5 (LA) Rose Parade broadcast on in the background this morning, and long-time host Stephanie Edwards, a sweet little old lady type, said, in response to some factoid about some faces on floats being made of walnuts, "I'm going to apply some nuts to my face this year."

Well, that was funny enough, but toward the end of the parade when the Upland High School marching band came on, she pointed out that the Upland High Regiment's claim to fame was being in Urban Dictionary. I am not making this up. She really said that.

True, someone did put Upland High Regiment in Urban Dictionary. But the entry lacks the flair that we've come to know and love from Urban Dictionary.

I'll credit the Urban Dictionary line to an Upland High prankster sneaking it into their press kit. The nuts on the face? That's just pure broadcast magic.

Happy New Year, WC. I look forward, with some trepidation (I must add) to seeing how your economic forecasts go in 2011.

You missed the repeated reference to Nodi seaweed when I believe that it should have been Nori. Additionally, it was written on the sreen as Nodi.

You are a perverted moron. This 70+ year old lady wasn't talking about those kind of nuts.

What type of nuts are you referring to?

This is a family blog and I don't appreciate your insinuations.

...cause we all know that people in righteous Victorian families aren't supposed to have genitals. How screwed up is THAT?!

W.C. stop projecting onto innocent 70 year old little old ladies. It's not fair!

I had to replay it 3 times. My husband and I were rolling on the floor with laughter. and Bob Eubanks was trying to be so cool and it together, which he did. But you could tell he wanted to ...eh, bust a nut.

Happy Super Tuesday!
