We've named David Paul as the city;s

Best Meteorologist

before, but we never knew he had the stoic ability to soldier on through physical afflictions that would have broken lesser men.

We speak, of course, of the hiccups.

But now -- or soon -- the world will know of his dedication. KHOU put the above video up on its site showing Paul hiccuping his way through a live forecast, and now it's been picked up by Gawker. That means it will likely go viral, and Paul's hiccups will be heard round the world.

We've asked Paul for comment but haven't heard back, but he's obviously making a strong bid for a return win of Best Meteorologist. Can you out-hiccuo him, Frank Billingsley?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
