Listen to a group of panicked folks call the police on a gentle whale near their boat

How do you avoid the temptation to jump in the water and give em the old, “he’s got me! He’s got meeeee!!!”

My favorite part is where the caller informs the 911 operator that three grey whales are underneath the boat, and another passenger makes sure she corrects it to humpback. So the police can put out the proper APB, apparently?

Are you allowed to fire your family?

Because I’d seriously want new ones if I were that guy

Yeah, crank up the spinning blade of death when you’re sitting right on top of a couple of humpbacks (at least one of which appears to be a juvenile). Smooth move, jackasses. And probably a violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

What we gotta do is build a wall in Puget Sound to keep out those whales. They come here, they get underneath our boats, they eat all our plankton, and they’re all big and scary… I mean, we can safely assume some of them are very fine whales of course, but if we don’t make the Sound safe for krill and weekend boaters, how can we call ourselves a nation of laws?

Well, to be fair, the whale does have very dark skin.

The whale said…“Hey, white folks…how do you like it when someone fucks with you when you were minding your own business.”

Also: the boat captain or guide…a little too excited about this experience. The “squeeee its foillowing us.” was a tad creepy.

the dude urging calm is clearly the boat owner and is used to this. whales tipping boats over almost never happens.

Did they have immigration papers? Probably best to let the police handle this.

At a minimum, they should be given a cetacean.

Trying to tie in Star Trek: The Voyage Home into this conversation but I haven’t had enough covfefe yet.

If I think of something good, I’ll let y’all know. :neutral_face:

I think he was hoping his enthusiasm would catch on and instead it only amplified the bad energy. Shouting “It’s not SCARY!!” might not be the best approach to take with panicked people. They’ve got that scene from Jaws where the shark gets up onto the transom of the boat playing on endless loop; they’re not interested in the majesty of nature.
