    Those first clouds are what we in Minnesota call "muffin" clouds and they tell us to get the hell in the basement before a tornado kills us. Or, stand on the front steps and watch for it, like my brothers and I used to do, lol.

    Of course there would be a dick shaped cloud. Why wouldn`t there be?

    Clearly due to to alien retro-engineered technology used by NASA and FEMA to influence weather systems. Oh, and HAARP, somewhere in that.

    I should have taken a weather class when I was in college. When I`m flying through clouds in a plane, I always wonder why they form in different shapes that change shape so slowly even when we are speeding through. Is a cloud a physical 3D mapping of varying humidity, temps and pressures?

    "lauriloo, if I ever move to Minnesota, I will most certainly remember your piece of advice."

    When the sky turns green and the muffin clouds appear, you`ll probably get hail and hear a tornado siren soon after. It`s pretty freaky and fascinating to see.

    That seems like a lot of effort for a silly peen joke.
