On a certain humor site, I found a link to this news piece about a huge dead whale that washed ashore in Washington. The voice-over finishes up the piece with "...to try and figure out why this wonder of the world died and washed ashore..."
Do the news people really just keep talking just to be talking?
Why did it die? Because nothing lives forever.
Why did it wash ashore? Because it's dead, and dead critters don't move on their own.
Did they really have a hard time figuring that out?
Does somebody need to be sure & tell 'em that it's not a smart idea to try & eat that?
Just figured I'd better make sure...
