I still say that NOAA is missing out by not letting companies sponsor these storms in exchange for naming rights and advertizing. Home Depot, Lowe's, Harbor Freight and Northern Tool would probably be all over this.

"Coverage of Hurricane Kirk is brought to you by Home Depot, your one stop for plywood, tarps, pumps and generators."

Hurricane Ernesto will make landfall in some podunk coastal town. Victims will include townies and several...

WOLVERINES!

I actually can easily see that happening

Hey, I get a named storm this year. Better be a good one.

WTFdoesitmatter: As far in debt as our government is, I can't understand why they haven't gone the route of corporate sponsorship for naming the storms. Alternatatively, they could go out to the hood and let some ghetto biatches name the hurricanes, just for the sheer entertainment value.


Hurricane LeFauwnda would be pretty awesome

NOAA is given a list of names to use for Hurricanes. They're selected by the WMO, World Meteorological Organization.

Mock26: I hope that the give Hurricane John another shot. 0 deaths and only $15 million is a pathetic showing for my name sake. I want Hurricane John to rack up at least 500 dead and $20 billion in damages!

So... Is that the theory "No such thing as bad publicity"? Or anti-sponsorship such as Pepsi buying the naming rights and calling a storm Sprite.

/Hurricane Chuck Norris would clear Florida.

Trance750: ChubbyTiger: Wake me for hurricane Tiberius.

Or Hurricane George... just spinning a lot of hot air


It'll hit Haiti, declare Mission Accomplished, and be inexplicably used again next year.

/"hurricane george" was used despite there being more popular votes for "hurricane gore."

AdolfOliverPanties: My name is Kirk. This is the second time that I know of that I have been a hurricane. Last one was around 2007. I was dating a girl named Patty and there was a Hurricane Patty that year too. And she was a Carolina Hurricanes fan.

/csb


You two must have had a hoot nicknaming your sexy times.
 
2012-06-03 02:36:23 PM
I'm sorry Mr. Kirk, your son is dead. He was killed by a hurricane.

/Energize.
 
2012-06-03 02:36:42 PM

NeoCortex42: I like that idea. How about this: All companies making over so much a year get entered into a lottery for hurricane names. Any company can have their name not included by paying additional taxes.


The Hurricane Games?
 
2012-06-03 02:45:50 PM
Woo hoo! No hurricane for my name this year.

Bad enough being attached to that Twilight Saga shiat.

Ma'am, I know you've just been through an incredible tragedy, but we need you to stand in front of the fire and say, "Channel Six is hot, hot, hot!"

Of course not. I may be evil but I am certainly not stupid! :-D
Give me blizzards over tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes any year of the century!

girljen: Interesting. The name "Connie" was retired in 1955, the same year my mom, Connie, was born.


My father got to experience Camille in 1969, another storm that had it's name retired. He was at Keesler AFB near Biloxi. He said oil tankers were shoved three miles inland by the storm surge.

Seriously.

I wonder when Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are going to organize a protest over racist hurricane naming conventions....

I mean WTF? Not a SINGLE N * GG3R name?!

How about Hurricane shiathead?

(we'll see whether the filter farks that one up.)

Hurricane Tony? If it's a giant guido storm threatening South Beach, I could believe it.
Why not name hurricanes something more fierce? That might encourage residents to flee.

Attila
Hitler
Butch
Butkus
AnalDestroyer

and so on...
 
2012-06-03 03:20:15 PM

The name is usually transcribed as SHI Apostrophe Space THEAD.

the_colonel: Omar is on the name list for the 2014 hurricane season. I want to see the reporter standing in the blowing rain yelling "Omar comin'."


Abner Doon: I wanna hear that hurricane whistling "Farmer in the Dell"

/ I guess I'll settle for your wish though, that would indeed be pretty cool.


Rann Xerox: And if you happen to be in the eye of that hurricane, all you will hear is "The cheese stands alone!"

NeoCortex42: Mr. Coffee Nerves: Wait just about 20 years and you'll feel ashamed for liking Hurricane Kirk when we're all killed by Hurricane Picard.

And years later, Hurricane Janeway manages to reach land in Australia.


And then Hurricane Archer comes along and they decide to stop having hurricanes altogether.

Yeah, but that is after Hurrican Sisko just spun for months in the middle of the Deep Atlantic, not really accomplishing anything other than diverting ships around it.

With nobody paying attention to the hurricane until years after it's dissipated.
