I think that maybe once a year, you'll find a harmonious corner of the internet where people aren't trolling one another at all.
This year, that corner happens to be a thread of hilarious dick jokes under a picture of hurricane Hermine in Florida, which hit land as a tropical storm on Thursday.
The photo was posted on the Facebook page of Jacksonville local news station WJXT4 a day before the storm hit, and has since collected thousands of comments regarding its dick-like shape.
Here's the original photo:
As you can see, the shape of the storm clearly resembles a penis.
Their post reads,
BREAKING: A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the west coast of Florida in anticipation for what will likely be "Hermine" by Thursday.
I don't think this news station was expecting a flood of dick jokes to hit its page. Here are some of the highlights (but there are too many to include):

People were honestly surprised at how nice everyone was being on this thread, especially since the internet is full of trolls.

My coworker, Alec, even cracked one himself: "For this election, Florida finally grew a dick to fuck us with." (I'm so lucky to work with him.)
I'm sure the folks at this Florida news station had a great laugh. Because even in the wake of a potentially deadly storm, there's still some time for dick jokes.
