I may have mentioned once or five hundred times my obsession with the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Specifically my fascination with a little show called Air Jaws which takes place off the coast of South Africa. So, you can imagine my delight, terror and awe at the following story and accompanying pictures (please, please, please click over! I promise you it’s worth it!):
Yes. That is a 40 TON WHALE jumping onto a boat. (Not to be confused with pictures of me from my last sailing excursion. I kid, I kid.)
All I can figure is that the whales in South Africa got wind of all the fame that those sharks were getting and this little guy decided to take matters into his own hands and win back some of the limelight.
One thing I know for sure: I will not be riding on ANY boats off the coast of South Africa anytime soon. Because, honestly? Sharks, Whales- it doesn’t matter to me. I’m equal opportunity terrified.
