The waters were calm and tranquil and ordered a pizza after a dose of anti-depressants.

Meteorologists, working in conjunction with pharmacologists, have stopped a tropical depression in the Atlantic Ocean before it could develop into a full blown hurricane. As a general rule, a tropical depression develops into a tropical storm, and then may become a full blown hurricane.

The weather phenomenon was halted from growing beyond the depression state with a huge airdrop of Prozac.

After the medication dissolved into the water and was allowed to work for seven hours, the ocean returned to a calm and peaceful state.

Dr. Casey Windworth of the University of Miami said that "we've been wanting to try this for a few years. We always thought that depression was depression, in weather or people. Today, we showed the value of using anti-depressant drugs."

Makers of the drug Paxil were upset that their medication was not used. They have contacted Florida State University to see if they will try the second largest anti-depressant drug on the next tropical depression.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
