This one is very good. I'm nominating you for the 2017 "Best effort to reconcile that old World with cross idioms jokes" Wilmott Prize.

I didn't realize when I posted it, but the hurricane cone I linked for irma is being updated every few hours (so is not the same as when I posted it)
The track has changed repeatedly over the last few days, at times skirting to the south of florida and entering the gulf and at other times skirting to the right of florida and either coming ashore in the carolinas or missing the US altogether

Right now, it looks like it will hit florida head on early on Sunday and go straight up the middle of the state
The trolls have been in overdrive on twitter, with some suggesting that Trump has a weather machine and has engineered Irma to kill all the hispanics in miami, while others are reveling in the thought that irma might damage mar-a-lago

and the current track seems to be pretty much along the gulf coast of Florida with places like palm beach spared the worst of the storm

lol, the title is
Irma: Florida governor's climate change denial has made state even more vulnerable, warn experts
'This is what happens when you build a major metropolitan area at sea level with a state government that is in denial...and supports polluters'

Don’t Blame Hurricanes Irma and Harvey on Climate Change

Is Irma really the strongest hurricane ever?

the florida track looks eerily similar to what we're expecting from irma

The guy with the map on the right is telling the world it would be insane to go outside with such strong winds

in 2010, congressman Hank Johnson (D, Ga) famously worried that Guam might "tip over and capsize” if thousands of US troops were relocated there from okinawa.
Alex Jones has in the past wondered what would happen if a hurricane triggered Rep. Johnson's mechanism in florida
