A dead sperm whale washes ashore in Isla Vista. The masses turn out to show it the utmost amount of respect.
Warning: Contains brief rear nudity
We had either discovered the dead whale, or someone had lost a shitload of silly putty.
This man was clearly taunting the poor creature. Everyone knows that sperm whales dream of one day being Pelé.
The naked homeless man loved whales. Loved em.
Naked Man: Don't worry. I used to watch that 'Crocodile Hunter' show all the time, and nothing bad ever happened to him.
Surfer 1: That naked guy sure is running from the whale real fast.
Surfer 2: Totally.
Surfer 1: Gnarly.
Surfer 2: Tubular.
Surfer 1: Radical.
Surfer 2: Gnarly.
Surfer 1: I already said gnarly.
Surfer 2: Bummer. Let's go in the water already.
Surfer 2: Has the horizon always been slanted like that? I need to lay off the coke before surfing.
Birds are bastards. Proof? This one was pecking at the whale and he wasn't even hungry.
Families turned out for a nice bit of rotting whale corpse theater.
This girl was the bravest person at the beach. She ran to within a dozen feet of the whale, chirping slurs at it in dolphin.
One of almost a dozen surfers to almost hit the whale, Ahab had a special motivation to avoid contact.
"....and you just know it tastes salty too. Ha!"
The tide turned the whale violently enough that the tail whipped around the air, swatting at imaginary flies.
