Coral Gables, Miami (IPP) - The National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Coral Gables, Florida announced this morning that Ebonic names will be given to hurricanes in 2009. They have decided to do this in the interest of maintaining a fair and balanced list of names issued to tropical cyclones.
The list of names for 2009 is: Aquanita, Bactrin, Chetiqua, Duanita, Equandolyn, Floce, Genatren, Halibasha, Ignitia, Jartrovious, Kendrick, Latreena, Machoda, Niqueesha, Oranjello, Pecola, Robitussin, Six-Pak-4-Sure, and Tywana.
The NHC says that in the interest of fairness in 2010 they will use lame white names given to kids born in the 1980's like Travis, Trevor, Jeramiah, Jessica, etc. One scientists we encountered while he was on his way to diversity classes and who wishes to remain anonymous quipped that eventually we will name hurricanes after Big Foot names. He asked, what ever happened to real names like John, Mike, Linda, and Sue?
