Poor John Brown.
He's the St. Charles, Missouri TV news reporter at the butt of the Internet's latest joke — er, we mean viral video, which we have for you right here on RadarOnline.com
Watch the video here on RadarOnline.com
The clip making the rounds shows Brown doing a report about the area’s bird migration with a small Cardinal bird nicknamed "Albert Pujols" (after the St. Louis Cardinals slugger of the same name) in his hand.
Brown then let out a high-pitched screech as the bird bit his thumb during his live report.
We give credit to Brown, who laughed and smiled through his pain like a pro, showing his bitten-up thumb after the bird let up.
