End your weekend right with this video of Philly news anchors laughing at Ryan Lochte

Here are two things most everyone can agree on about Olympic swimming stud Ryan Lochte. He is easy on the eyes and he is not a member of the Mensa society. To put that in terms that even Ryan Lochte could understand, what we’re saying here is that he’s big hunk of not-so-smart but really buff man meat. One more thing that most everyone can probably agree on is that this video of Fox29 Good Day Philadelphia anchors Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle Jones interviewing (well, trying to interview – bit of a stone/blood thing going on here) Lochte – whose new reality show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? premieres tonight on E at 10 pm - then cracking the eff up over it when the camera stops rolling is really funny. As fellow journalists, we are required by the Society of Professional News People (that’s not a real thing) to shake a tsk tsk-ing finger at Jerrick and Jones over their rather unprofessional News People behavior. As internet consumers and supporters of things that are funny and make Sunday nights a little less painful, however, we’re similarly required to share this video with you. At least you can start off another long work week secure in the knowledge that you – probably – never made a lady almost laugh her fake eyelashes off at your expense. [The hilarity starts at 3:50, you're welcome.] For further hilarity, tune in to his show tonight. Or, you know, don’t.
