Saheel, Africa (IP) - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that next year there may be a lack of hurricanes due to social pressures in Africa.
Africans in the Saheel Region on the west coast of Africa are tired of spawning young hurricanes. The folks in this area say they are calling it quits after a hundred years of steady hurricane production.
They have become unionized and union leaders there say that there simply is not enough money made these days in the ancient old art of hurricane production.
For years the Africans in the Saheel region have used pools of water and fans to produce hurricanes. Fans are set up on opposite ends of the pools and the opposing winds get the wind and water swirling around in a circular motion. After the circulation gets up enough momentum the young hurricane is set loose on a westward course across the Atlantic Ocean and often reach the USA after about ten days.
The locals in the area will take up basket weaving and rope tying as their new occupation. A splinter group will produce clarinets, oboes, and accordions.
