Amy Andrews: News Anchor Hopes For A ‘Dry Hump Day’ On-Air

Dry Hump Day

News anchor Amy Andrews will likely become a viral star simply by mentioning on the air the hope for a “Dry Hump Day.”

According to Metro, Andrews was having a normal discussion on Wednesday with her co-anchors Alan Longstreet and Jay Towers about the third day of the week.

Throughout the United States, Wednesday is sometimes referred to as “Hump Day” – especially after a GEICO commercial became popular featuring a camel that kept saying “Hump Day” throughout a busy office.

Andrews first confirmed with her co-anchors that the day of the week as Wednesday shortly before the Fox 2 News anchor proceeded to put her foot in her mouth.

“It’s Wednesday, right?. I think so we’re getting there… Let’s hope it’s a dry hump day.”

After making the comment, it did not seem to click with Amy Andrews immediately that she had mentioned a “Dry Hump Day” live on the air.

Towards the end of the video clip, Jay Towers (the anchor sitting on the left side of the camera shot) gave her a quick look of shock – possibly after he had a moment to realize what Andrews had just said.

It did not take very long for Amy Andrews’ “Dry Hump Day” comment to start getting responses and reactions on Twitter.

Chances are that Amy Andrews was simply referring to the weather since their area has been hit with a lot of inclement weather recently. Some people apparently seemed to understand exactly what Amy Andrews meant and agreed that a Wednesday without rain would in fact be considered a “Dry Hump Day.”

Unfortunately, many other people would more than likely see a “Dry Hump Day” as meaning something completely different.
