The humorous side of Hurricane Earl

By Melissa Bell

In the face of danger, these twitter users laughed. As the category 2 hurricane bore down on North Carolina and Virginia, there were plenty of frustrations and fears vented on Twitter, but there were just as many jokes bandied about. We rounded up a few that made us smile (granted it is the middle of the night and we are a wee bit loopy).

Did you see any others we need on the list? Tweet #earljokes if you've got something that will tickle our funny bone.

Got to love all those hurricane action verbs the MSM throws out, 'churning' 'barreling' 'bearing down' 'roars' 'swirling' 'rolls' #earlless than a minute ago via web

Having Hurricane Earl right off the coast is like having a bear sleep outside your tent. Yes, hes sleeping, but hes still a bear (tnx jerh)less than a minute ago via web

Sounds like Earl turned out to be a real blowhard.
