Night of the Dolphin

26 September 2005

I know, I should be concerned about animal welfare, and the fact people may die, but a story about “Armed and dangerous killer dolphins” just strikes me as hi-larious

Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Experts who have studied the US navy’s cetacean training exercises claim the 36 mammals could be carrying ‘toxic dart’ guns. Divers and surfers risk attack, they claim, from a species considered to be among the planet’s smartest. The US navy admits it has been training dolphins for military purposes, but has refused to confirm that any are missing

In other news, Tyrone won the All-Ireland. I was a bit disappointed, seeing as was cheering Ciarraí Abú, but Tyrone were the better team, and more than deserved the victory. Course, I’d be a lot happier with Tyrone’s victory if they’d only have a wee word with Mr. Mulligan about that hair

    Yeah, armed dolphins shoot terrorists. Should I be outraged that dolphins are probably being abused or laughing at the thought that they are holding guns with their fins?

    I, as you can tell, went down the comedy route. Couse I did picure a load of dolphins hopping along on their tail fins, a la The Simpsons, and taking over the world…

    Were the US military watching Austin Powers films? "Hmmm, sharks with lasers, now that gives me an idea!!!!"

    Interesting possibility, and will they now demand (wait for it) one MILLION dollars or else they'll release these dolphins onto the world
