image for Hurricane Kept Afloat by Surprising Mechanism

National Hurricane Center, Homestead, Florida (IP) - Scientists have long known that hurricanes can not swim and just recently discovered how hurricanes are kept afloat.

Satellite images studied by NOAA technicians have recently revealed the answer to that perplexing question. Sea gremlins attach water wings to the arms of the hurricane and thus is the hurricane able to maintain its buoyancy and wreak havoc on all land masses which due to the permanent nature of their physical attachment to terra firma lying below are unable to get out of the way of the approaching cyclone in a timely manner.

An analogy to this phenomena can be drawn wherein an inebriated driver explains to the arresting officer that the tree or telephone pole or fire hydrant "jumped right out in front of me". A precedent setting case was established in this field in Kennedy Vs State of Massachusetts 1969.

The reason as to why the wings were not noticed previously is that the pigmentation of the water wings is aquamarine making them devilishly difficult to observe without the proper scientific apparatus.

The NOAA scientists will now attempt to puncture the wings in the hopes that the hurricanes will sink before they can gather any momentum known as MO among members of the scientific community. No Mo = No Mo Storm is the popular new motto being repeated around the water color at the National Hurricane Center's office these days.
