Whaddya mean "Now"?  They've been making this shiat up as they go along for many years now.  I think all TV weatherpersons should be young and buff and do the weather report topless.

I think they're just riffing on this. Kind of a silly attempt, IMO.

Isn't Bombogenesis the original clown creation story?  Back when Barnum took the red nose from the tent pole and got it on with Bailey?

New Jersey might get 4 inches of snow because of this?  The horror.

Slow down Rush.... although, with "Polar Vortex" which you can easily see online with a Google News search goes back to the 70s at least.... this term isn't seen anywhere I can find.   There is a website that Google claims is from back to 2001 with the term.

As dumb as Bombogenesis is it's still better than naming the storm Janus

Do we get a new wave of "If global warming, then why cold?" Idiocy in the next week?

Dammit, Janus! This is a rather lame Fark SNOWMAGEDDENOMGWTFLOL!!!! thread..

Where's the drama? Where's the plucky beer hoarders, boasting about how much alcohol they've stockpiled? The continual minor updates on the yard furniture? The AGW flames? The driving horror stories? The non-stop biatching about the Weather Channel having the stone cold audacity to name winter storms?

I blew off work today in Philly so I could sit at home, slurp soup, watch the slobbering weather pimps on the TeeVee, and Fark, Fark, Fark...

/got the fixin's for a grilled Pastrami sammich in the fridge
//and a fully charged deep cycle battery so I can Fark with the lights out

Hype term for what makes a nor'easter happen, apparently.

Wiki has a page on the it, but the earliest reference to its use I see there is 2013, so, yeah, making stuff up.

Came back to say please ignore the "the" in my previous, unproof-read post, and:

jwa007: I think all TV weatherpersons should be young and buff and do the weather report topless.


This, especially the cute female ones.

Yeah, Snowmageddon will just bring us the usually chill and barely an inch of snow.  F this S.  Guess I have to move *south* just to get decent snowfall.

"They look like tusks, and what kind of animal has tusks?"

"...A walrus."

"Didn't I just tell you to stop making up animals?!"

More silly portmanteau.

As a native Floridian who has to travel to Philly tomorrow, I'm not getting a kick :(

Remember when fark used to link to RvB?  That was a long time ago, and we all should've grown up and left this site.

Meteorological bombs are real (there are set criteria for how much a storm needs to strengthen in a set period of time in order to be classified as a bomb), but "bombogenesis" seems redundant.

No no, you're thinking of neuterotomy. Bombogenesis was the ceremonial sealing of the snake within the sacred can.

John Bolaris is a useless wanker who got fired from his last TV news job after getting roofied in Miami.

Dwight_Yeast: John Bolaris is a useless wanker who got fired from his last TV news job after getting roofied in Miami.


Didn't he get run out of town already for overhyping some snowstorm?  And then he overhyped the weather in New York and he came back here?  Now he's making shiat up again.
