weather weenies -- "But there are some weather weenies out there, weather junkies. Some people told us they were throwing their radios out when we went automated…" From The Wall Street Journal, March 4, 2002: an article, "Weather's Voice: Partly Sunny, Chance of Blunder," about "Donna" and "Craig," two computerized voices being tested by the National Weather Service's NOAA Weather Radio. The original voice, "Paul," has been dubbed by critics as Mr. Roboto, Sven, Igor, and Arnold.
