It's not big, and it's not clever

Whales continue to thrust their way into the headlines, blubbery media-whores that they are, this time by vomiting some sort of fabulously over-priced intestinal treasure over some passing Australians. While one can understand and even sympathise with the desire to vomit on Australians, one wonders why they didn’t stick with the traditional suspicious-kebab-and-inexplicable-carrots variety, rather than something that sells for $20 a gram. What are they, stupid? Don’t they know that stuff’s valuable? These big floating lummoxes are beginning to get on my nerves.

"A period of silence from you would now be welcome." – Clement Attlee.

Yet another bastard whale, yesterday, hawking a 30lb prairie oyster over a boatload of horrified eco-tourists. Bloody show-offs, that’s what they are.

It looks like elephant dung! Who would have thought it could be so valuable. A kilo of that could buy a hell of a lot of bananas. Human economics is a fascinating subject and I hope you'll write more about it. Harry does sometimes but it's obvious he's a dilettante.

Yes - I imagine we'd need a few workouts before we could fling *this* faeces. But imagine the satisfaction of a hit.
