… 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?? Interesting comments underneath though.
