Have you heard the one about the baybe seal that walked in to a club?

That "huge slimy cat" just HAPPENS TO BE MY WIFE!

-Sorry still unmarried, working on the compulsion. Compulsion not helping marriage status.

The BASTARDS.

Seals have always reminded me of puppies, especially baby ones.

I think someone voided the warranty.

Came in here to say this. Beaten by four.

oh. it's a live baby seal. Why do I read "baby seal" and immediately think "dead baby seal"

Please, no one void the warranty.
 
2009-12-23 01:12:36 AM
Look out, folks. If that thing survived, it's probably a little crazy.

Now, in the midst of the seal clubbing jokes I want to point something out to people who may not realize it.

In Canada it actually IS illegal to kill a baby seal.

So please alter your protests accordingly.

Although it is a little funny to walk up to people protesting clubbing the furry little white seals just to tell them that they're protesting in the wrong country since we're already not allowed to kill the cute ones.

Dumb-as-a-rock baby seal >>> Stupid farking yappy dog

I propose feeding the yappy dog to the baby seal. The seal gets a meal and the rest of us get peace and quiet. Very much a win-win for all.

/dog in TFA was not a yappy dog
//sure there was one nearby though

We routinely have sea lions at Bonneville Dam (145 miles inland). They are apparently native to the area, that is, they were here before the dam. They eat lots of salmon and annoy hell out of fishermen.

Maybe they were dreaming about slimy cat puppets?

In more ways than one, I guess.

Enough of the clubbing baby seal talk. The only Seal I want to see clubbed is the adult singing one!
We don't want you to "Live for Forever" either.
 
2009-12-23 02:38:10 AM
apparently the thing had some drug or alcohol problem ...

FTFA: "She has a a tag from Belgium, probably put on by the rehabilitation centre at Ostend, then she got into the River Rother and ended up in the stream."

I think the mammal protection act would have something to say about this?

No, they didn't break the seal.

Well I distinctly heard the mechanic say that the seal was blown, so someone needs to own up to it.

There's really very little more pissed off than a wet cat.

I can understand the family naming it Rudolph as they might not have been able to tell it was a girl, but the experts renaming it Gulliver? If you are going to rename it, at least make it an appropriate name.

Mmmmm, Baby Seal - the veal of the sea...

At least they've stopped killing Christmas Seals to make Fir Trees

Now we need to ban the Missile Toads

- For that matter why rename it at all? It was given a name already, and the name wasn't inappropriate. Damn the Aristocrats and such.
 
2009-12-23 08:31:01 AM
Why did they have to go and change its name to "Gulliver?" I think that "Rudolph" is just as appropriate for a seal who really doesn't give a crap what its name is.

NotARocketScientist: I can understand the family naming it Rudolph as they might not have been able to tell it was a girl, but the experts renaming it Gulliver? If you are going to rename it, at least make it an appropriate name.

Gulliver's way WAY more appropriate than freaking Rudolph.

1. Rudolph is a reindeer
2. Rudolph has a red nose.
3. Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer typically shows up on the 24th, which is tomorrow- and Rudolph isn't stupid enough to show up on Monday the 21st.
4. Where are the rest of the reindeer?

now:

Gulliver is awesome because:

it's a reference to Gulliver's travels, seeing as the seal traveled (ZING!) a great distance from his home. he ends up in a foreign land (these people's pond) and finds himself prisoner of the family dog (like the Liliputians, you see). There, he's forced to bear the horrible name of Rudolph, which is a metaphor for the ropes that tied Gulliver down.

You'll notice the Seal is much happier now.

Where do the British get these wacky names?!

Benenden?... River Rother?... Gulliver? Mallydams? Sussex?

Wacky!
