This blog is tongue -n-cheek.
Breaking News! This blog is tongue -n-cheek, comedy relief, so to speak.
Ratings are everything when it comes to TV shows, and the News is no different than a sit-com, reality show or drama.
Advertisers pay big money for the popular shows and what's more popular than the weather men and woman talking about hurricanes? Hurricanes are huge for ratings.
That's the conspiracy of the hurricane, telling people to buy bottled water, batteries, rice, candles and spam when they know darn well no hurricane will arrive.
Gas stations, Grocery stores and the Big box stores love it too. The weatherman is telling everyone to stock up on emergency supplies. Everyone has to have their bottled water,which is ludicrous in it's own right, just fill your bath tub or empty jugs with tap water.
There are times I actually believe these stores pay the weatherman an undisclosed amount of cash under the table to frighten people into believing a hurricane is eminent.
Unlike black Friday which happens annually, a hurricane sale can happen many times a year, like this past year, or go years without a sale..
The lines at the stores are out the door, police need to direct traffic in and out of gas stations.
This whole conspiracy if true can back fire when people start returning the pallets of bottled water they never had to use. It's like buying a dress or suit to wear at a wedding then returning it after you use it.
Odds are, one day one of these hurricane warnings will come to truism, but nobody will pay attention.
How many hurricane warnings will be needed until one really strikes? In the mean time this whole hurricane warning system reminds me of the boy who cried wolf, only this time time it's the weatherman that cried wolf.
This surge in sales should keep retailers happy until black Friday. Until then, Obama Da Dog reporting for K.I.M.O. news.
Yes everyone , this is blog is tongue -n-cheek. Comedy relief, so to speak... On a serious note, we pray hurricane ANA does not do any major damage. Be safe!
