When the local news identifies you as "Dude with sweet hair," you've probably reached the pinnacle of awesomeness for your lifetime. You can now die happy.

Between the fabulously funny on-air bloopers and those wacky weathermen, local television news is always good for a laugh or two. Like any creative industry, the people who work in the production control room tend to get a little goofy (or a lot bored) while on the job, and when they do, maybe they play around with the captions that pop up over video once in awhile. Or, maybe they're just calling 'em like they see 'em, and when the "Dude with sweet hair" shoe fits, you might as well wear it.

Check out 20 of the funniest moments in local TV caption fails. You won't believe these beauties made it onto the air!
