It took a while, but a whale was wheeled away last week after weighing in for weeks and having its stench wafting for quite a while. Whale, whale. After weeks of wallowing on the shore, wary workers wenched the washed-up whale while watchers winced, and some almost wilted. Pilau! The wind worked to widen the width of the whale's stench, thus adding to the woes of the watchers in the neighborhood.
When this wondrous creature wasted away while watchers wheezed and waves worried the workers, one wonders why this woeful whale tale occurred in the first place. Hopefully, the wise wizards of whale-ology can learn from this magnificent 65-foot long denizen of the deep. These beautiful and gigantic creatures, almost mythical in nature, are sometimes taken for granted at the same time as their numbers decline worldwide.
