porkloin: My wife and I were in a kayak in Monterey Bay. We had pulled up next to the volunteer guard who was telling us about the various birds that had shown up that morning. We noticed another couple paddling rather frantically in our direction. These folks seemed very excited and crashed into our boats.The woman in the craft exclaims, "Oh my God! There is a dead sea lion over there!" as she points toward the shore.The guard fellow calmy replies, "I doubt it is dead. It is probably just sleeping. Did you poke it with your oar?"The woman says, "No, we didn't poke it! But do sea lions sleep like that? It looked like it is dead!"I looked out across the bay and the fog, the waves sofly rolling, the gulls. Smelling the salt air. I looked at the frantic woman and said, "Ma'am, haven't you ever heard of a Sealy Posturepedic?"Later we paddled away from this unlikely situation in the middle of Monterey Bay and I thought to myself, "Gees, I could live a hundred more years, and never have the opportunity to use that pun again."
