    Cats. Lots and lots of cats.

    Look in the background. The thing was loaded on an open flatbed trailer. How'd you like to see that coming down the interstate!

    LMAO!

    I also noticed the tail was dragging on the ground behind the trailer, that must have left one hell of a red smear down the road.

    Man - that is a lot of Sushi.

    My question is this. They were taking it to get an autopsy - and the article said that the whale died after grounding itself on the southern shore of the island.

    A. If they know how it died - why do an autopsy?

    From the looks of things, I'd say the beach would have been a much better alternative than whatever they had planned!

    I can just see the guy who owns the scooter in the foreground talking to his insurance agent: "Yeah, my moped was totaled by an exploding 56ft sperm whale on main street. . ."

    They need to figure out if it was a suicide.

    My guess is that by mid evening the autopsy would be performed in probably 30 or so restaurants around town.

    Perhaps we could ship about a dozen Polar bears over there and this would solve there problem in no time.

    I have my suspicions wether this was really a natural whale explosion or a possible terrorist detonated whale. If one of these trained Al Qaida marine mammals had beached itself anywhere along the Mississipppi River I would have never risked transporting it into a inhabited area. That's exactly what Osama wants you to do. Instead, everyone should be moved to a safe distance and the whale detonated in place. This can be done from a safe distance with standard equiptment which should be routinely carried in the POV of any prepared citizen. Be sure to take photos or video of the operation so that you can have proof of your vigilance in protecting your community from these stealth marine attacks. Take pics of your team members posing with their feet propped upon chunks of blubber then send copies of the pics to the editor of Soldier of Fortune magazine.

    Ya know Cellblock, you remind of this guy that I met a few weeks ago. Funniest guy I've ever encountered in my life, a couple of hours in his presence and I felt like I'd had a two hour ab workout due to the constant fits of laughter he had us in. But with each story he told becoming more and more outrageous I found myself wondering if he was truly for real or not....... strangely I find myself wondering the same thing when I read your posts.

    Had this come from anyone else but you, I would have immidiately passed it off as a joke. However, concidering the source of this one, I find myself wondering if you are serious. Based on past postings, I think it is quite possible.

    On that note, has anyone seen tha video of the beached whale in oregon that the highway dept used dynomite to to try and get rid of it? It failed misrably.

    Dangit nmfire, you beat me to it!

    Cellblock, as nmfire pointed out the 'blow it up in place' strategy has been tried before. On the face of it a dead 45 foot whale and half a ton of dynamite might sound like fun, but check out this video. It doesn't work out quite as well as you might think.
