Failwhale: Pretty good job, actually.

Ahh.. the antarctic right whale.

A couple on a whale-watching trip off Cape Town, South Africa, say they had a lucky escape when a 10m (33ft) specimen leapt on to their yacht.



I remember years ago, Ben Elton used to close one of his stand-up routines with a piece about ‘bio-diversity’ by describing the behaviour of this particular creature.

To cut a long story, short, the whale just tried to shag their boat. And it succeeded to the tune of £8.5k.

Nice work.

  1. I wouldn’t confess to having paid to watch Ben Elton, myself. ;o)
