The version I have archived doesn't have that line in it whatsoever. Wishful thinking on someone's part, me thinks.

You know, I didn't get the manipulated one, either. I suspect that this came from one of the numerous sites out there that try to play off like they are the official source for hurricane info - just a hunch - and it was admittedly a little humorous, yes, but quite dangerous - if you think about it.

Truly looks as if their original text was tampered with. Notice the amount of lower-case in the bogus version, compared to the original above

There are sites that have automatic text decoders to convert uppercase to lowercase; Weather Underground does such a thing. I wouldn't say it's bogus because of that. However, we get everything that comes down the pipe from the NHC so unless it escaped out somewhere through some other means, I gotta think this one's not for real.
