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.
