Those whales. Such jokers.


Here’s a scientist talking about the great difficulty of finding whales out on the open ocean. Wouldn’t you know it…?

That’s excellent comedic timing.

I hear they’re also big-hearted.

    The sighting was a fluke.

    Oh ya, when I do that behind a news reporter it’s “Get outta the shot asshole!” . Cetacean privilege!

    That pun blows.

    Some people just don’t appreciate rorquality of humor.

    This man is Mark Cawardine. He co-wrote the book “Last Chance To See”, way back in 1990 (the lead author is none other than Douglas Adams). It happens to be one of my top five books ever. I highly recommend it. The two of them (plus other BBC crew members) travel through the world, visiting species critically endangered and talking about what efforts are being made to help them. It’s a funny an enlightening book. Adams, before he dies, said that this was is least commercially successful book, bu it was the one he was most proud of.

    Does this mean that Mark Cawardine is doing another series?

    Mr Carwardine’s (note corrected spelling) website indicates that the series the video is taken from, Big Blue Live, has just started. So the answer seems to be “Yes”, at least if you have access to BBC1 TV.
