Nothing wrong with muching on a whale if you haven`t eaten properly, ever, but i don`t like the fact that some little pricks with clubs made money from it.

Did the Makah tribe get a whale this year?

Mmmm... whale blubber
2001-08-18 03:53:30 PM  
Damn! Don't let these people near that zoo freezer!

One time...I found a Goldfish in my sisters room on the floor. I ate it. No biggie.

Maybe the nigerians did a whale dance to attract it to shore.
2001-08-18 05:08:24 PM  
that's sad. "continues eating her tacobell*
2001-08-18 05:20:12 PM  
..least they didn't stick dynamite up its ass & blow it to smithereens
2001-08-18 05:23:41 PM  
Yeah. Thank God we live in America, where we can afford to EXPLODE dead whales and create giant meatstorms.
2001-08-18 05:50:05 PM  
too bad that balloon guy didn't land here
2001-08-18 06:02:20 PM  
Good lord!!

Deoxiribonic: I bet there's some whale in your chalupa, too! ;)
2001-08-18 06:08:58 PM  
Okay... so who's smarter... All those scientists who've attempted over and over to rescue stuck whales or these Nigerians who had the common sense to know what to do with free food when they see it?

Quite frankly, we can learn a thing or two from these 3rd world folk.

McBlubber: Now with 20% more blubber.

2001-08-18 07:22:19 PM  
It's not a big deal, that happens in Japan all the time
2001-08-18 07:34:04 PM  
Someone should post a link to the exploding whale video for those who haven't seen it...

If someone can't find it, I have it somewhere on one of my cds and will upload it.

Are the Nigerians the cockroaches of the African continent ?
2001-08-18 08:35:12 PM  
Listen to DrDave!
Oprah and Rosie will teach those people environmental sensitivity and how to gain weight on a politically correct diet.
We will probably have to pay for a good part of it in terms of foreign aid...
2001-08-18 08:41:33 PM  
This is both farking hilarious and disgusting at the same time. How far have the Nigerians come since the caveman days? Yes, you can't say enough for social progress.
2001-08-18 09:49:51 PM  
Leave DrDave alone. It's not a bad idea. Maybe those two fat bleeding-heart biatches will stay there. Apparently there's not enough food to go around for them there skinny fellers as it is. I wonder if any of them kids'll part THEM out for profit.
2001-08-18 10:01:16 PM  
Kilgore40: yeah, I was wondering how long it would be before Japan was mentioned...well done!

I was going to say "The whale might still have been alive? Call PETA!" But then I remembered that they want us to eat whales. This event must be a coup for them!
2001-08-18 10:10:29 PM  
What? No BBQ sauce! Damn, shoulda atleased gotten side of cole-slaw
2001-08-18 10:13:01 PM  
Guys,guys. That WAS Rosie.

Epsilon you are a farking idiot.

Starving people eat food and you make fun of them, likening them to cavemen.

You, sir, are a farking idiot.

Epsilon is a farking idiot.
2001-08-19 12:06:44 AM  
Epsilon, I would like to imprison you. I would like to deny you food for months. I would like to beat you and to torture you.

Then, after a few months of all this, I'd like to offer you some food. After you havent eaten for months, I'd like to give you some food. and you'd eat it. I'd be sure to have a bunch of dim-witted morons on hand to assert that you were some sort of sub human for eating food. To maintain that you, epsilon, "havent come along very far from the caveman days."

You are a farking idiot.

Hey Dynein, don't get you panties in a bundle, there. I found a bit of dark humor in the fact that these villagers are pushing each other out of the way to rip chunks of rotting flesh off the carcass of a beached sea creature, and then the neighborhood thugs gather weapons and use the opportunity to make a buck.

Was my observation way way out of line? No, I don't think so. I think I was right on target. There is most definitely something very primal about such behavior. It's not the fact that they were eating, but the way the events transpired.

That's precisely the type of behavior we see in many animals, and it's also how scientists theorize that Neanderthal society often worked. Judging by the way you chose to word your ignorant, pointless, and immature verbal assault, you might fall into the same category.
2001-08-19 01:17:38 AM  
Ok, boys, to your corners please.
2001-08-19 01:42:59 AM  
Epsilon, I'm with you. Mudhuts and liprings. Yessir, they've advanced.
2001-08-19 03:56:38 AM  
I`m with him too. If it wasn`t for a few things the westerners introduced those people would still be in the stone age, and show no interest of getting out of it, so fark `em.
