Storm Watch

For those of you who don't know, it's hurricane season, and Hurricane Gustav just hit land a few days ago. The way these storms evolve, they start as a tropical depression, then a tropical storm, then a category 1 hurricane all the way up to a category 5. As for names, they alternate between girl and boy names. So, after the male Gustav is the female Hannah.

Why am I telling you all this? Because after Gustav the news channels began monitoring the next hurricane-to-be, so it said on the screen "Hannah Storm Watch". Do you think this person was a little confused?

Ok, technically the graphic on MSNBC said "Hanna Storm Watch", so the television anchor Hannah Storm probably wouldn't have gotten confused. Or, she would have gotten doubly confused because 1. They misspelled her name and 2. They were watching her.
