CHICAGO -- In honor of  National Weatherperson's Day, we decided to dig up this old clip of Chicago's favorite weatherman Tom Skilling.

Several years ago, WGN Morning News sports anchor Pat Tomasul did a funny bit about the ownership deal involving Sam Zell and the Tribune Company. But in the end, its Skilling who steals the show.

"If anyone owns this place, it's me: Tom Freakin' Skilling! I could have you killed if I wanted to!" he exclaims.

Try not to laugh while watching this clip. We dare you.

Thanks to Tom Skilling and all of WGN's on-air meteorologists.

  • Reality Check

    You just had to repost this garbage again, didn’t you? It was stupid then, and it’s even managed to somehow get worse now. Besides, he should have said “I’m Tom stuttering, stammering idiot Skilling” instead. That would have been more accurate.

    Shut up Skilling. You’re not even close to being funny.

  • Born and raised

    Reality is subjective, and there’s no need to be rude, bored anonymous human. He’s a meteorologist and television spokesman, not a comedian. And he’s a top TV weatherman, and all around Chicago icon. Have some respect, on this day of all days. Let them have their fun.

    Happy National Weatherperson’s Day, Tom Skilling! May the wind always be at your back, or at least on the other side of a building.

        Jealous of that hack? You’re delusional! Skilling is the worst weather guesser in Chicago. He can’t get yesterdays weather right. And anybody who thinks otherwise doesn’t own a TV.

    • Reality Check

      Reality is NOT subjective. Where did you get that from? I’m not being rude, I’m being honest. It’s your problem if you can’t see the difference. You’re right about this; he’s no comedian. Hence, he shouldn’t try being funny. He’s as bad at that as he is predicting the weather. And respect is earned, pal. And he’s hasn’t earned it with me. Not with his fake homespun act, useless weather stats, useless maps, and condescending attitude.

      And if Tom Skilling is a Chicago icon, we need to set the bar a lot higher than it is. Skilling is a babbling, stuttering idiot. Like it or not!
