Carnac the Magnificent, "may your ladyfriend's orca rip your liver out with the surgical precision of Dr. Chris Barnard's handy man."

Then again, it could be aliens.

You only liver once.

At least as the subject

Yet another reason not to go swimming in the ocean

these attacks are not just mystifying, they’re also scaring away sharks from the area

Send the orcas to San Clemente Long Beach Washington!

from the article, the orcas are after the squalene-rich liver

According to Wikipedia, Squalene is a natural 30-carbon organic compound originally obtained for commercial purposes primarily from shark liver oil (hence its name, as Squalus is a genus of sharks) … Squalene is the biochemical precursor to the whole family of steroids.

So the orcas are getting their T fix?

First the humping an now this. Tough time to be a shark.


Something is fishy here.

Son of Blubber II?

Yeah, that's really nice and all, but just wait until the next Sharknado starts in YOUR town! It'll be the sharks that are removing YOUR liver!

One day.. (God said)
speaking of judgment day.Amen!

What an awesome day.

History repeats itself. The Old West had it's Liver-Eating Johnson, now the white sharks have a liver-eating orca to endure.

We are taught today that with these things only the liver is good. I bet great whites 'don't ' eat some livers.

🎶That's a nifty way to lose your liver.🎵

Rolls eyeballs

I saw standing on orcas open for gutsy gutmove.

They are selling them on the black market for llegal organ transplants
