This sounds like a reference to something cool, but I just can't quite place it.

Or am I just drunk.

No great loss.

Pilot whales are like the rats of the ocean.

Whales are farking idiots. Christ knows, I'm pretty thick but at least I know if I'm in the bloody sea or not.

When rescuers approached the whale, it opened it's mouth and said, "I need about tree-fiddy." It was then that the rescuers noticed that it was not a whale at all but a giant crustacean from the paleolithic era.

I think you mean A Hard Day's Night in Bangkok by the Ungrateful Stones. Easy to confuse the two.

Such silliness, when what we should really be asking ourselves is, "Why is one of the smartest animals on the planet killing itself? Is today the whale rapture?"
 
2011-05-22 10:19:45 AM
That is what happens when people let the IMF and WTO run the planet.

Once again, proving that pilot whales aren't exactly the rocket scientists of the whale world. Aren't they the type that's *always* beaching?
 
2011-05-22 12:33:25 PM
It probably beached itself in a sleep trance, or possibly a dream dance.

Don't give it the money or they'll never go away.

Sounds more like a gang or mob hit...

One whale left on the beach, the others leaving the area...


Someone no longer sleeps with the fishes

Goddamn it. Autopsies are preformed on humans, necropsies are preformed on animals. This is not difficult to get right!

There's a little black whale on the beach today...

While the whales pout and preen like cheap tarts on a red-light beach, all we can ever think to do is watch.

Is my size up there?
 
2011-05-24 11:01:21 AM
My wife and I decided to visit Scotland once, so we rented a car in Edinburgh and went driving around the countryside. My wife's got a Scottish ancestry (her clan is Ritchie), so she was very excited to get a chance to visit the places where her ancestors walked, battled and generally pissed off the British. Driving took a little getting used to, us being Americans and all, but it wasn't so bad once we got accustomed to it.

Anyhow, we were driving through the highlands, enjoying the scenery and having a pleasant time, when this police car pulled up behind us and signaled for us to pull over. I knew I'd been speeding a little bit, so I was understandably nervous when the cop pulled me over.

"How are you, officer?" I asked.

"Did you know you were speeding back there?" he said.

"Ah, well, I wasn't sure," I lied. "I'm an American, you see, and I'm not used to your signs out here."

"Mmhmm," he said, and started the process of writing out a ticket.

"Look, officer," I said nervously. "I don't want to have trouble getting out of the country because I have a traffic ticket on record. Is there anything we can do to make this go away?"

"Are you trying to bribe me, sir?" he asked.

"Uh, no..." I backpeddaled. "I meant maybe a warning or something..."

"Because if you were," he said, "I'd need about tree-fiddy."

Well, it was about this time I realized that this wasn't no cop at all, but about eight stories tall and was a crustacean from the paleozoic era. The Loch Ness Monster.

And I said, "Dammit, monster! I ain't giving you no tree-fiddy!"

And it said, "How about two-fiddy?"
