!$%# Hansen Says -- how come ABC didn't think of this first?

A perceptive reader notes that ABC -- or WFAA8 -- might want to counter CBS' new $#*! My Dad Says with a version starring ever-unpredictable sports anchor Dale Hansen.

Earlier this week on a 10 p.m. newscast, Hansen hit another sweet spot after the other half of the Dallas-based station's comedy duo -- weathercaster Pete Delkus -- boasted about getting a signed copy of the new Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders calendar.

"They autographed this just for me, but they didn't leave one for you," Delkus jabbed.

To which Hansen rejoined, "Which explains why you were hidin' in the bathroom."

Anchor Gloria Campos' patented Glo Camp cackle could be heard all the way to Waxahachie while Hansen and Delkus guffawed and straight man anchor John McCaa perhaps emitted an inaudible chuckle.

I didn't see it at the time, but that's the beauty of youtube, where the exchange is newly posted. The video's a little blurry, but you'll get the picture.

And if you want my opinion, yeah, maybe it puts a little tarnish on an ongoing new promotional campaign that positions WFAA8 as the Taj Mahal of local news content. But damn, it was funny. Love him or loathe him, Hansen's one of a kind..
