Act Like You Don't Know Him

Headline: Australia Starts Cleanup After Big Cyclone

Amazingly, the storm caused no reported fatalities, and only 30 people suffered minor injuries. But the damage from Cyclone Larry, a Category 5 storm with winds up to 180 mph, was expected to run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
Cyclone Larry? That sounds like the drunk uncle everyone tries to ignore.

Blows into town, wastes all of your money, stays too long, and has really bad intestinal problems - winds at 180, come on!? Gax-X, Larry, Gas-X!

Hopefully, they won't get hit by Typhoon Mary next.

Saw film on the news tonight of that cyclone. It looked like something from a Hollywood set. Awesome.

I guess they shoudl be grateful it hit a relatively unpopulated area. Can you imagine THAT hitting Miami?
