(In reply to Seventeen creative alternatives..... by Penny)

Here's a few more in the same vein, Penny:

"Judging from its climate records, Murmansk may be one of the lamest 't'-meals in the world."  (where "t" here is an obvious colloquial reference to typhoons).

"Judging from its climate records, Murmansk may be one of the sweat's wastes in the world."  (Much akin to its more popular and distant cousin, the Bermuda Triangle, the migratory nature of sweat bi-products to the distant city of Murmansk has baffled scientists for centuries.  NOTE:  Please stifle your comments on the illegitimacy of this one--two words were in fact formed by an arragement of the six letters even though one took advantage of the possessive and was really a five letter word.  I figure someone's going to raise a stink about the rules, and I better just address it right off the bat.)

"Judging from its climate records, Murmansk may be one of the bluest Blutes in the world."  (Recent archaelogical evidence has surfaced linking the west African city of Blute, Guinea-Bissau (refer to http://www.calle.com/world/PU/6/Blute.html) to the northern city of Murmansk, Russia.  This recently proffered evidence suggests that around 5,000 B.C., modern day Guinea-Bassua was inhabited by two families of reigning patriarchs, Roy and Ernie Blute.  History records that although they did enjoy a good seventy years of peaceful cohabition, Roy, in a fit of drunken rage, apparently ordered the slaughter of his brother's camels after it was believed by him that his brother cheated him at cards.  Ernie, incredulous at being called a cheat and now bereft of all camels, was left little choice but to change his name to Murmansk (Russian for "Blute"), and to carve out his own niche in the frigid wastelands of Hyperboria.)
