Serial Killers on Display

You'd figger a whale involved in two prior deaths might not be a good display animal:
Whale kills animal trainer at SeaWorld
Witnesses at the Orlando, Fla., theme park say the whale, which had been involved in two previous deaths, dragged the veteran trainer underwater until she drowned.
Still, gotta keep the kids entertained.

Dammit, forgot this:

We call out to the beasts of the sea to come forth and join us, this night is yours
Because, one day we will all be with you in the black and deep
One day we will all go into the water

Go into the water
Live there die there
Live there die

Area orcas have been advised not to leave their tanks.

In the San Diego incident, the park's most experienced trainer was dragged to the bottom of a pool during a show by a 7,000-pound killer whale named Kasatka.

The trainer, Kenneth Peters, escaped with puncture wounds and a broken foot after he calmed the orca by stroking it.


Kenneth Peters is ridiculously hardcore and he can calm me with stroking anytime he pleases (and I mean that totes heterosexually).

She evokes some odd emotions in me. Never talked to her as far as I know, but friends of friends, etc. It's easier to listen to people who I don't know anything about. And makes me less jealous.

Hall and Oates "Maneater" I believe is the correct coolly ironic video in this case.
Thus the bio diverse among us could make a Punne or play on words about manatees and the thread could be extended toward an infinite fish pun horizon.
It is an internet tradition, people!
