Hurricane Sandy Inspires Online Humor
October 29, 2012 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
NEW YORK, (UPI) – Hurricane Sandy, headed for the east coast of the United States, sparked online humor in the form of Twitter posts and images featuring other famous Sandys.
The storm sparked the creation of several Hurricane Sandy-related Twitter accounts — some serious, some humorous — as well as several joking images superimposing the faces of “SpongeBob Squarepants” squirrel Sandy and Olivia Newton-John’s character of the same name in “Grease,” the New York Post reported Monday.
“Hopelessly devoted to ruining Halloween,” reads the caption on one image, which put Newton-John’s face on the hurricane for a joke on the song “Hopelessly Devoted to You” from “Grease.”
“Dear Spongebob, please keep Sandy under control,” one Twitter user wrote. “She’s getting out of hand. Sincerely, Everyone.”
