Who decides on hurricane names?Would you be afraid of a guy named Francis?  What kind of a dick at the National Weather Service named a hurricane Francis?  Talk about adding insult to injury.  Not only was your home destroyed, but it was destroyed by Francis the Foppish Hurricane.

Maybe this is part of some PR campaign for hurricanes trying to make them friendlier, less destructive sounding.  “Get the kids, Francis is coming!” “Oh, should I put out some tea?”

I see a long line of wimpy, effeminate hurricanes coming.  Hurricane Petunia, Hurricane Rainbow, Hurricane Teddy, Hurricane Candi (with an ‘i&#8217wink, Hurricane Davion.  They should name hurricanes after American Gladiators, Hurricane Lazer, Hurricane Blaze.  I don’t actually remember the American Gladiators, but I do remember they had tough, scary names like that.  Maybe they should name them after famous historical figures.  I know I’d be afraid of a Hurricane Nixon.

    Or you could name them accurately. Hurricane “About to trash your house and kill your children” would definately suit the storms.

    I’m holding out for Hurricane Cody.  Or Tropical Storm Chet.

    I just don’t understand why they name hurricanes and not other weather events or natural disasters.  Why not a Tornado Willy?  Earthquake Bob?  Cold Front Evelyn?

    I think we should just name weather events that have a higher than average chance of ending your life.

    “Up next, Burning Hail Bob continues it’s mysterious rain of destruction on the East Coast. Could this be a sign that Ming has returned to threaten the Earth? Flash, we need you!”
