The internet responded as it always does to the prospect that a huge disaster might happen and then wasn’t as large as expected: with photoshops and sarcasm. Although it should be noted Hurricane Irene was genuinely worse for some people than others, we’re not here to bum you out with the bad news. Let’s focus instead on the aforementioned photoshops and sarcasm, like this OK Cupid profile for the storm which lists her as, “Just kind of blowing my way up the eastern seaboard; it’s like I go to Wellesley.” Oh, I love you, internet.
