A Good Beep

Storm's a-brewin'. The emergency weathermen were back on the air last night with their FUTURETRON! It was the old weatherman and the young weatherman, but I didn't see them squabbling this time. And it's called the FUTURECAST, not the FUTURETRON. But isn't there already a word for FUTURECAST? Isn't it "forecast"? The old weatherman was complaining that the FUTURECAST was actually showing the past, so that part was amusing. Then the young weatherman was worried because they "got a beep" from one of their weather machines. Then he said, "Wait, it was a good beep." The old weatherman said, "I like it when they do that." They chuckled with relief. They seem to be getting along much better.
