I tried with a live one, but it kept squirming and was all like "whhoooo whoooop eckeckeeeeeek" or whatever the hell sound they make, and I couldn't hold my breath very long with all of the salt water and lobsters pinching me and such. Dead ones are far easier.

Perverted is not applying some spray paint to a dead whale. Perverted is farking a dead dog in a ditch outside a preschool in the middle of the day. I would also accept many of the horrible internet things that I cannot unsee. You know the ones I mean. But not tagging a dead whale. It's dead and in a few weeks/months it will be no more. I wouldn't do it but really, not a big deal and certain not perverted.

PETA is sending their top investigators, so don't start laughing when they arrive.  OK, don't laugh too much when they arrive.  Alright, don't push them around, and then, throw them into the ocean when they arrive. Yes, I know, but, don't do it too many times.

They planned to vaporize it, or at least pulverize it into tiny pieces that the birds and shiat would make off with. Or something like that. Obviously the plan did not undergo a lot of analysis before it was implemented.

Me neither.  Unless being a teenaged attention whore dolt is now illegal.  I mean, a building where people have to live or might not wish to drive past and see where you lifted your leg and pissed on it every day, yeah.  That sh*t f*cks with property values for property the tagger doesn't own, and costs money to remove.  A dead, bloated animal carcass?  Meh.  Poor thing.

Some creative young person took the time and energy to come up with the design and place it in such a memorable place.  We can't criticize art in a fair and modern world - doing so is worse than racism or sexism of the vilest sorts.  Whatsoever the canvas might be it is our responsibility to observe, reflect on and be improved by art in all forms - even if we don't personally "identify" or "agree" with it.  Failing to identify with art just means your perspective is limited and your views narrow.  The opinions of the base lower classes are invalid.
