It doesn't get much crazier than this – unless you're talking about a crazy last-second catch or interception in the end zone for a miraculous win.

A TV station in Green Bay, Wisc., trying to soothe itself after the Packers' loss to Seattle on Monday, poked fun at the NFL by putting a replacement weather forecast on one of its newscasts. The fake forecaster, wearing dark-rimmed glasses and an incorrectly tied necktie had a TV remote control in his had as he predicted a high temperature of 346.

At the bottom of the screen was a Twitter hashtag "#replacementweatherguy".

The real weather guy eventually came on screen.

I don't care who you are, that there's funny stuff.
