"a whale the size of a bus"

I've seen buses the size of whales.

...the thing about a whale... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'...

FTFA: The whale stayed around the beach for two hours before heading north with the guidance of a police boat and three jet skis.

The whale probably wanted to apologise to the surfer for hitting him. "Sorry, dude. I didn't see you there."

Surf rage . . . it's not just for bipeds anymore.

I see dolphins riding the curls near me all the time, luckily they know their right of way.

Note:  In Australia, they don't have any Rhode Islands, so they describe things in terms of buses.

The current exchange rate is 2.3 bus = 1 Rhode Island.

Dude was probably a kook trying to drop in on the whale's wave.  Whales hate kooks.

I will have no whale in my pod, said Keepiru, who is afraid of a man.

OK, well, maybe not, but it SHOULD have been.

What if the whale had swallowed him?

Mistaken technology?

Good for the whale.  Nothing against the surfer, but still, good for the whale.

"Actually, orcas aren't quite as complex as scientists imagine. Most killer whales are just four tons of doofus dressed up like a police car."

I'm inclined to agree, for no reason other than Orcas are dicks, and this is just the sort of thing that they would do.

The cops gave a whale of a ticket for unauthorized use of a surfer.

You know, a lot of people expected maybe Mark "Cutback" Davis or Bob "Jungle Death" Gerrard would take the honors this year.
