Last week at our local airport (CYKF), the automated AWOS/ATIS was out of commission. So one of our well-known ATC guys (Dave Clark, who was working ground control at the time) was heard on the ATIS frequency stating:

"The automated AWOS/ATIS is currently unavailable. Winds are light and variable, and vis is CAVOK; runway 14 is in use, altimeter 29:95."

The pilot ahead of me taxiing out called ground and said:

"Waterloo Ground, this is Cessna CXYZ with information DAVE!"

The ground controller (Dave Clark) immediately broke up, and we all had a good chuckle.
