With the rather messy birth of Tropical Storm Wilma earlier today, the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season has tied the record set in 1933 for the most named storms. Record keeping only began in 1851, so it's entirely possible that there may have been a worse one back during the age of the dinosaurs, which according to some creationists, roamed the Earth in peace and harmony with man.... Well, except maybe when they got hungry.

Wilma, recently separated from Fred after he caught her in bed with Barney, is currently in the Caribbean near the Cayman Islands and headed north towards the Gulf of Mexico.

The hurricane season runs through November 30. If any more named storms do pop up, they will be named after letters of the Greek alphabet beginning with Alpha.
