… this one would be funny if it weren't so damn depressing.

Study finds more people are killed by female named hurricanes than male ones because people don't respect them as much… I kid you not.

Wow, I thought this was going to be a Daily Mash story or something! But it's the Washington Post. Some of it even reads like the Daily Mash:

“[Our] model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll,” the study says.

A case of the female hurricane being more deadly than the male?? wink

Interesting comments underneath though.
