No?

Oooh water going this way now weeeeeee!

They fix the cable?

Florida Man decides that they really do look like the little mermaid?

They're probably safer with a hurricane than with boaters.
 
2022-09-28 1:11:13 PM  
As for me, I'm safely in Virginia.

No.

What happens to manatees during hurricanes is that they end up being safely tucked into my grill and their deliciousness is enhanced three-fold.  Manatee steaks are amazing eating.

Does this include the one living at MarALardo?

We know what would happen during Hurricane Hugh.

They hunker down and make a little side cash.

No more than any other fish.

They ride the wind.
That's how manatees accomplish long-distance travel.

They hammer beachfront hotels like giant gray hailstones.
 
2022-09-28 1:43:09 PM  
Well geez.  That's a bit more serious than what I always pictured was just being swished around a bit and being all "holy crackers what are the humans up to now?"

Zoologists call it "ballooning".

Hey, the evacuation centers are open. Can't help them if they don't help their selves.
 
2022-09-28 1:49:25 PM  
don't they usually go to the Waffle House?

During a hurricane, marine biologists have documented the subtle change in the manatee's facial expression from "Not this shiate again" to "It's this shiate again."

Both are pictured above.

Yes?
Was actually going to look into this, thx, subby.
You "No" people are some edgy mofos.
Wow.
Such edge.
Very sharp.
Wow.

Yeah.  That was a little weird... was a bit surprised by that reaction.

Manatees > "no" people in thread #12579006

Take that, "no" people in thread #12579006!

Same thing that happens to everything else?

Methinks there will be literal tons of relocated/stranded animals when this is all said and done.
 
2022-09-28 4:11:15 PM  
Sadly, some of them explode.

Dude, just because you got fired by the Marlins doesn't mean you have to take it out on all marine-life...

I'll admit Barbara is a tad on the obese side, but calling her a manatee is just wrong.

Oh, mother, don't be so sentimental. Things explode every day.
