KABB anchors are unintentionally making it an annual tradition to be mocked by Last Week Tonight host John Oliver.

In Sunday night's episode, Oliver introduces the "And Now This" segment showing local anchors who can't be trusted with St. Patrick's Day. The quick-cut sequence shows anchor after anchor dressed up in green and speaking in – you guessed it – an Irish accent.

Oliver gave KABB's Kimberly Crawford a few seconds more of air-time, noting that her Irish accent sounded more British when she said "They're always stealing me lucky charms!"

The St. Patrick's Day mockery comes a little more than a year after Oliver poked fun at Crawford's on-air partner Esteban Solis, who totally missed the point of International Women's Day.
