Why don't we name tornadoees like hurricanes?

Why don't we name tornadoees like hurricanes?
So this stupid topic infected my brain, when today, I got on line with my Redneck friend from Oklahoma and he talked about the frequency of tornadoes vs hurricanes.

He made a very good point that most tornadoes don't last long. But still, why does some weather get named and others do not?

Tornadoes rarely last more than 1/2 hour, so the news people talk about where they fucked up people and property. With a hurricane the name often gets applied when it's a tropical storm. This is purely for "bookkeeping" purposes. The newsies will talk about Tropical Hissy Fit Brian for days.

Tornadoes are like cats, they don't come when you call them.

They've started naming random squalls now.
At the start of the year we had a different named storm every weekend, we just waiting for storm Zsa Zsa Gabor to show up...

Tornadoes are like having a quickie with a stranger. No names or exchanging phone numbers. Hurricanes are like a long weekend with a Fuck Buddy.

I actually started this thread based on a prior conversation with a Redneck friend from Oklahoma, and he actually dared me  to start this thread just so he could read the responses. This so far, at least for me, wins the day!

And just so everyone knows, i have a TORNADO magnet on my fridge sent to me by my best friend from Oklahoma.

As nasty as they are, tornados cause far less property damage and loss of life than hurricanes.

There’s also the fact that the US experiences more that 1000 tornados per year. If you had that many hurricanes, you probably stop naming them as well.
