When good fish go bad

Last night there was a story in the news about a man who’d been out in his boat on the water (duuh!). All off a sudden, a stingray jumped into his boat, and stung him in the chest with its butt-spike-thing. As we all remember (those of us who’ve been somewhat sober, anyway), Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray recently.

For years and years, we’ve been polluting the waters and eating their offspring. We swoosh and putter through their homes on our boats, whilst playing music that they don’t understand and sticking fishing hooks into their livingrooms. They’ve finally had enough. And who can blame them, really? It had to happen sooner or later. The people who created “Jaws” and “Planet of the apes” had it all wrong. It’s the stingrays you need to look out for.

The time has come to stock up on canned food, alert the military and stay away from the water.

Then again, I might be over-thinking this…

If stingrays are the first wave of animal revolt, more power to them. We don't deserve any better.

hmmm, i don't think it's the stingrays we need to look out for, I reckon it's the squirrels.

Jazz - I bet we could make a fortune selling them illegal weapons *rubs palms together*

Hagel - See, that's what they want us to think. Truth is, the squirrels are to easily distracted by bird trays and such.

I can't wait for the sturgeon to attack. It's time for revenge for all the eggs people have eaten!

choochoo said...

Keep eating those eggs. It might set them off sooner. Buahaha.

If all of the animal kingdom is about to rebel for all the evils humankind has done to them, then we just might be added the endangered species list.

Holy crow, that is un real. Now they are seeking us out!

Tim - probably. And many of the creatures on it today, would probably jump right off. Go figure.

The cubicle reverend - Not that we're all that hard to come by, really;)
