Amateurs. You have to slice that stuff up and hide it inside peanut butter sandwiches.

This could never happen in Oregon. The State Highway Department there has a method to not only destroy the vomit, but also the whale.

One quesdtion: which is the illegal park, the sperm, the whale or the vomit?

Asking for a friend.

Remember the "singing" whales? For vomiting whales I recommend any song by Ozzy Osborne...

In their defense, performing a Heimlich maneuver on a sperm whale is a rather noble act, but if they used a large spoon, that's a different story.

How much can you legally have on your person for it to be just a misdemeanor?

Jeff Meyerson: I don't know about India, but in the US, the answer is all of the above. The Marine Mammal Protection Act covers the whales andtheir "parts or products." With limited exceptions, you need a federal permit.

Dr. J Fever: Violation of the MMPA is basically a misdemeanor, with fines of up to $100,000 and one year's imprisonment for individuals.

Was the "sting" conducted by manta rays?

Dude, this whale vomit is killer!
