Sorry for lack of postage... busy with school (stupid professors who expect me to learn; stupid editors who expect me to cite check AGAIN!; stupid wife who expects me to earn a living, so I have to interview... stupid life).
Anyway, I just saw this article that the National Hurricane Center may run out of storm names
for this year's Hurricane season. But here's the best part
"We only have four names left on the list this year: Stan, Tammy, Vince and Wilma. If we have a fifth storm it would be named Alpha," said Daniel Brown, a meteorologist at the center, which is based in Miami, Florida.
Excuse me? Hurricane Wilma? What happened to Hurricane Bam Bam? And Hurricane Stan? My personal view is that hurricanes should not be named after Eminem Songs.
But my favorite is Hurricane Vince. Not Vincent, but Vince. If hurricanes could talk, this one would be entertaining:Hurricane Vince (with a heavy Italian/Brooklyn Accent)
I'm coming for you, you freakin' Florida coastline. We warned you that if you didn't pay up we'd have to come over their and break your freakin' legs. Why you wanna fuck with us like that?*Florida
Honestly, Vinny, we're getting the money today... you'll have it by 5 o' clock.H.V.
The big man is tired of waiting, Juice Boy, and we are tired of axing for the money. So, I will request it only one more time. The money.FL
No, please! What if we promise to restore the Everglades? How 'bout that?H.V.
I'll take it up with my associates
OK, not funny... oh well. Sleep deprivation will screw up your funny bone.
The author of this blog in no way means to imply that all Italian Americans are members of the mafia, especially my two friends of Italian decent here at school, so don't send out the hit squad just yet... but come on this bit was too funny in my mind to resist, unfortunately, not that funny on the screen. Eh, waddya ya gonna do?
