News Anchor Attempts To Say 'Okurrr' Like Cardi B And Fails In Hilariously Epic Fashion

Trending

There's a lot of depressing news out there.

Between all of the nonsense coming out of the Trump administration, all the news surrounding Brexit, and the sobering reality that we're all just looking at memes to distract ourselves from living the curse of the starving class, it can be difficult to locate a sliver of light in the darkness.


But even the news has its humorous moments, like the fact that rapper Cardi B officially filed the trademark paperwork for the phrase "Okurrr" with three Rs, which "would mostly cover merchandise like clothing and paper goods," according to a report from ABC 13.

You have no idea what I'm talking about? Here's a refresher:

Cardi B is part Dominicana, okurrr, and she knows how to trill her Rs.

Apparently she decided to trademark "okurrr" due to popular demand, if that's what you want to believe:

But the news anchors––well, let's be fair, just co-anchor Dan Jaehnig–– on NBC 10 WJAR really don't know how to trill those Rs, as evidenced by a clip from a newcast in which they relayed Cardi B's intention to trademark the phrase.

Jaehnig's colleagues, Mark Searles and Emily Volz, were able to do it. But when he tried, he emitted something resembling a blood-chilling caw that can only be described as what it would probably sound like if Donald Sutherland's character at the end of Invasion of the Body Snatchers attempted to bang a knothole in a tree.

Check it out:

Oh, sweet honey child. That's not the way you do it! You gave us a good laugh, though.

We laugh so we don't cry, everyone. Also, Dan, please explain yourself.

We still don't know what the h*ll that was, even after commissioning several scientific evaluations.

Time flies when you're having fun - but the opposite is also true.

Every one of us knows what it is to look at a clock and then wonder if it's broken because there's no way that's al the time that's passed. The last few minutes before the school bell rang or before you could clock out; the "doctor needs to speak with you" minutes; those excruciating moments before they got home - you know what I mean.
