Orcas have sunk 3 boats in Europe and appear to be teaching others to do the same. But why?

Each whale has a famous character inside who is directing the destruction against living beings - the famous characters in include Jonah, Pinocchio (before his transformation to living human form), Geppetto, Figaro, and Cleo.

It is Disney's way of showing they have power beyond Florida's boundaries to wreak havoc on a certain politico.

Schools of whales appear to have revised their curricula.

Well, that's where the beer is.

I don't blame them.

It's retaliation for the desecration caused by the OR highway department.

Maybe the orcas are taking up fishing. They call this pod casting

"Girls"?... I'm shocked the Blog is being so sexist!

(Yes, yes, I know the right answer.)

Although "twirls" would be a good category name applied to ditzy females... (twit + girls)

So one Orca says to the other.

Further details were released on this story. Seems these creatures are a bunch of teenage punk fish out for retribution - as they are ramming ships they are heard to say things like: "That's for Moby." "That's for that bastard Ahab." "That's for Pequod and Ismael and Queequeg."

But the amazing thing is the songs they sing as they ram these ships - songs like: "He ain't heavy, he's my blubber."; "Yummy, yummy, yummy, I've got Pinnochio in my tummy"; "It's all right, whale, I'm only breaching"; "A whiter shade of whale"; "When the spark hits the mark like a shark in the dark, that's a moray"; "Clamalot"; "Jonah, jonah, jonah, jig, jig, jig"; and "What's it all about, algae?".

So it's a bumpy ride, but quite entertaining.

And we thought you were going to blame the squirrels…Wait a minute!!!

The Orcas got their mailout from the EU Commission on Aquatic Behavior. This is their response.
