Our Blizzard Is Named For ‘He-Man’ Character, Not a Cool One
The Weather Channel decided to start naming winter storms this year. No one really understands why. The storm that drilled the northeastern United States was named ‘Nemo,’ the cute little clown fish in ‘Finding Nemo.’
The name given to our storm is “Orko .” He was a character on the ’80s cartoon “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.” But he wasn’t a cool one. He was ghostly looking wizard thing with ears and eyes but no face.
Since the names go in alphabetical order, it had to start with the letter ‘O.’ I think we would have been better off with ‘Olive Oyle’ than ‘Orko.’ Or skip the alphabetical thing and just call it ‘Skeletor.’
