Viewers of Houston's KHOU-TV could be forgiven for believing heavy rain would put a couple extra hiccups in their commute on Monday.
As it turns out, those pesky spasms were actually in the broadcast.
Station meteorologist David Paul suffered a bout of the hiccups as he opened up his segment of the broadcast Monday morning.
Impressively, Paul soldiers on through the nearly 3-minute weather report -- complete with a rundown on various road conditions -- with nearly 15 hiccups and only a few stifled giggles.
That doesn't mean the rest of us can't laugh, though.
