Ye olde English whale? Straight from the BBC, apparently this northern bottle-nosed whale wanted a night on the town. And by town I mean, those buildings in the picture are Parliament. You don’t get more middle-of-London than that – and London isn’t exactly coastal! Fascinating.

Nifty!

I wonder why it decided to do that, though. I doubt it was following food, since there’d be more of it out in the ocean. Maybe it was running from something. Like… an enormous shark, Jaws-style! O.O

Isn’t it obvious? Yesterday there was a ‘Changing of the Guard’ ceremony at Buckingham Palace and this whale wanted to attend. Unfortunately, the palace isn’t viewable from the Thames – apparently the tour guide the whale consulted was inept.

Now I expect said whale is trying to find its way to the Apollo Victoria Theatre to watch ‘Saturday Night Fever’.
