Can't pass up an opportunity to joke about disaster

Response to Terrible OT/ Classic Car dealership in Staunton, IL goes up in flames

These two old guys are lounging on the beach in Miami sipping drinks with little umbrellas in the glasses. They get to talking and one old coot asks the other what he did before he retired. The guy replies that he'd owned car dealerships for decades: he owned an Packard dealership, but it burned down. Then an Edsel dealership, but it burned down. Then a Studebaker dealership but it burned down. Then a Saab dealership, but it burned down. Then a DeLorean dealership, but it burned down. Then a Yugo dealership but it burned down. Finally, an Oldsmobile dealership, but it burned down. So he decided he was old enough that this time he wouldn't rebuild with the insurance money, but retire to Florida on it. He, in turn, asks the first guy what he did before retiring. The first guy said he'd owned a factory that made ladies hats and corsets and gloves up in Atlantic City, but that just as ladies had quit wearing corsets, hats and gloves, a hurricane blew in and destroyed his factory, so he'd just taken the insurance money and retired to Florida.

The other guy nods and mulls that over, then looks sideways at the guy and says, "Hey, I gotta ask... just how do you go about starting a hurricane?"
