Don’t Sneeze or Whistle! It might cause a storm!

DON’T SNEEZE OR WHISTLE! 

IT MIGHT CAUSE A STORM!

     The 2011 spring was filled with wild weather. Storms galore. Not just simple, gentle, easy, storms, but violent storms. One tornado in the south encircled four smaller tornadoes in its vortex. A tornado in Massachusetts sucked the Connecticut river into its whirling center.

     According to the National Weather Service, in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, region rain fell on all but two May days, and all but eight April days. The total number of inches of rain and melted snow totaled 21.5 inches by the end of May, eight inches above average.

     Why did these storms occur?

     Some blame the storm pattern on global warming. Others attribute it to the wrath of God falling on our sinful nation. Still others believe it is the cyclical nature of the earth’s weather.

     However, pirates have another answer: sneezes and whistles anger the being who blows hurricanes and tosses their ships around.

     Pirates are a superstitious lot who witness firsthand all types of magic artifacts, arcane creatures, and other worldly beings.

     Perhaps the pirates are correct. After all, they are a superstitious lot. And everyone knows we should heed superstitions.
