Grab a pen and paper, we'll start this latest collection of Dan-links with a short quiz.
These two questions appeared on Yahoo Answers within a few days of each other, both questions asked by the same person:
1) Are you a fan of the weatherman Dan Corbett?
2) Who is your favourite UK weather presenter and why?
The answers are, apparently:
1) YES! So I'm not alone!!!
I never actually know what the weather is because I'm so mesmerised by his crazy dancing and the hand gestures, not to mention the surreal weather personifications ... Can we make him our leader?
2) I love Dan too! He always gives suggestions for what we can do - perhaps some shopping, take the dogs for a walk, have a barbecue. And he's accurate too. If that man gets any more accurate he's going to be burned as a witch/wizard (whatever) he knows his stuff!
Moving swiftly on, a similar question has been asked recently on DigitalSpy; BBC Weather - Who's the Best Forecaster?
The first respondent replied with;
I bet Dan Corbett wins this contest.
As much as I'd like to think that was true, Laura Tobin seems to be equally popular on DS (probably for reasons mentioned in message #22). Tsk-tsk.
Professional Pilots Rumour Network
Over on the Professional Pilots Rumour Network, a discussion about news readers turns to weather presenters. A certain presenter on Sky is apparently,
Not a patch on the Shakespearean Dan Corbett. I half expect him to whip out a skull and start addressing it with a monologue about the isobars.
As always, here's news of the latest Facebook groups.
Daniel Corbett Appreciation Society
Daniel Corbett is the BBC's premier weather reporter.
When you need the facts, when you need the charisma, when you need the weather, Dan is your man.
You need your sense of humour for this next one:
All Hail the Weather Goblin
A home for all those people who enjoy Dan Corbett leaping around the TV screen cursing parts of the country with bad weather. But he's just fab!
I've lost count of how many Dan-related groups there are on Facebook but I reckon it's probably in the mid-teens now.
