June 15, 2009: Asperatus
I'm sure you know that different types of clouds have official names like cumulus, stratus, cirrus, and nimbus.
I think is an excellent idea... have as many different types of clouds defined and named as possible.
That way Scholars, Scientists, Meteorologists and Weather(wo)men, can communicate sightings and their consequences.
I say old chap, did you see the Asperatus formations last evening?
Yo dude, didja see them fuckin' clouds lasnite?

I only have one problem with that name.

We'd freak out if we saw clouds like that in my neighborhood. For clouds that rarely produce storms, they sure look scary as hell.

I thought this was about asparagus, too.

Asperatus sounds like a star machine or a bronchitis medicine. Snowdonia sounds more impressive, and we can pretend it means "clouds forming stalactites way up there".

Yum Asparagus! Love those clouds too, but without the Asparagus superimposed on them. Those can go on my plate.

And brussels sprouts, and cauli-whatsit, and broccoli, and cabbage, and and and...

The funnel cloud thingie right behind the boob looks like a wicked pig snout.

Would you rather have a lament?
SPUCK Tuesday Jun 16 05:53 AM
Don't big black nasty things come rearing up out of the pavement when you see those clouds?
