Those of us in the media world are enjoying the fact that the latest hysteria-inducing storm shares a name with one of Hollywood's notoriously moody actors.
But no one pulled off a joke about it quite as successfully as NYPD's 108th Precinct in Long Island City, which tweeted this graphic created by comic website Flama on Thursday:
As you can see, the path of the storm is accented with little Joaquin Phoenix heads, which get increasingly menacing as the storm progresses toward New York.
Down south, we start with an innocent "Inventing the Abbotts" era Joaquin, progressing towards the troubled "Walk the Line" Joaquin, finally landing at the full-on tyrannical jerkface we saw in "I'm Still Here," the 2010 documentary about the actor's hard-partying lifestyle that was, he and director Casey Affleck later claimed, totally faked for the cameras.
We can at least be thankful that unlike its thespian counterpart, Hurricane Joaquin will disappear after a few days.
And in a close second to the NYPD's excellent storm tweet, there's this one from DNAinfo's own Nikhita Venugopal:
