They're taking the piss now…

BBC: Cyclone Hudhud causes widespread damage in eastern India
India's east coast has been pounded by a powerful cyclone, Hudhud, with winds of up to 205km/h (127mph).

I take it Hudhud is the Hindi equivalent of Norbert. Either way, it's still a damn stupid name.

Stop it!

(Oh, apparently, hudhud is a local name for a hoopoe. I rest my case.)

  1. If they're not limited to people's names now then that opens up a world of possibilities... Hurricane Chlamydia? Hurricane Drosophila? There are loads of fine options out there.
