Getting someone to read euphemistically rude name out is one of the oldest pranks in the book. Hell, Bart Simpson spent the whole of the 1980s doing just that.

And yet people still fall for it to this day.

Like this weatherman, for example, who wishes one Hugh Janus a happy birthday while live on air.

The male newsreader immediately clocks the mistake, but the female newsreader doesn’t ever quite grasp what’s going on.

The chances of this referring to a real person called Hugh Janus are infinitesimally small, as there cannot be anyone who actually has that name. If there is then their parents need locking up.
