What a day, it’s only 9:32 and I’ve seen some great news already!
Danny DeVito got sloshed and went on the View yesterday. That is AWESOME. Good for him.
(I posted the link twice to see if it would work)
And then Shamu went batshit and tried to kill his trainer. Apparently this killer whale had tried to throw this particular trainer out of the tank a year ago. I think there’s a feud going on here. Of course, Dianne Sawyer was shocked, sounding weepy she asked, “why would this giant sea creature do this?” There are so many things wrong with this statement I don’t know where to start…
1) Giant Sea Creature? Does she think a killer whale is some sort of monster from a Jules Verne novel? Shamu is the creature from 30,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the one the squid was afraid of. Or maybe Shamu is some mythical thing to her like the mermaid or the Kraken.
2) Why is anyone surprised when an undomesticated animal that is penned up in an area MUCH smaller than its natural habitat goes crazy? If I was captured by some crazy person and forced to perform tricks for snacks I’d bide my time and wait to fuck him up too! Maybe forcing animals to do amusing tricks isn’t wise. I’m interested in seeing what the trainer does now. I wouldn’t go back in that tank, I think Shamu knows he didn’t kill the guy and will come up with another plan. I’m guessing no one remembers that movie ORCA.
The funniest thing about it was the retarded audience members saying things like, “why did the whale do it?” and “I knew right away that wasn’t part of the show.” Now if SeaWorld had a show where Shamu ate (or tried to eat) a trainer every time, I’d pay to see that!!
