On the Naming of Cyclones

Talbo makes an excellent point:

I'd hate to be named either 'Rita' or 'Katrina' right now. It just wouldn't be good.

In the future, I move that all cyclones or natural disasters be named after dictators like 'Hurricane Hitler' or 'Cyclone Stalin' or 'Whirlwind Whitlam'. That would be much more sensible.

How about Light Breeze Latho or Big Breeze Bob Hawke.

Nope, pathetic.

Bob seems to be producing a bit of wind at the moment ... maybe deliberately, as a way of drawing the attention away from light-breeze Latho. Whitlam always was a windbag though.

I'm quite fond of Hawkey. Not a bad PM, he was.

One of the greatest things about Hawke is living overseas and telling people that one of our former prime ministers is in the Guinness book of records for a beer drinking competition.

Could you make an exception for Typhoon Tony (Blair)?

Blizzard Blair, anyone?
