Local anchors are pretty much a target for laughs on HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver at this point. For the second week in a row, host John Oliver featured a San Antonio anchor in a roundup of ridiculous news segments.

Last week, it was Ursula Pari for Cinco de Mayo. This week, it's Mark Austin during some casual Mother's Day talk with Leslie Mouton.

Among the various clips, KSAT's Mouton turns to Austin and asks what he's going to do for his wife for Mother's Day.

He responds, "Let her sleep and not talk for 30 seconds until after she's started drinking coffee."

Watch the cringe-worthy conversation and the entire Mother's Day segment below.
