Friday Orca Blogging

(Taken by Stefan Jacobs while on a team at the EARTHWATCH Orca Project. Buy the poster here--benefits go towards ongoing killer whale research at the Center for Whale Research, Friday Harbor, USA.)

Almost forgot. It's hard to get perspective from this (beautiful) photo, but this appears to be a rather large Orcinus Orca. The fin can be up to six feet tall.

I've always felt a strange kinship with these massive, misunderstood creatures, these magnificent kings of the ocean.

Enjoy.

Johnny-

Love the new tux! Looks great on you. After that wardrobe malfunction the last time you went to an A-List event, it sure is good to see that our latte money has gone to good use.

Since you can't keep too many Orcas in your apartment, I'm going to hazard a guess that you'll be traveling to provide us with inspiring Orca photos for weeks to come. Not to mention the coffee klatches in the major cities throughout the world. I can't blame you. Videoconferencing isn't for you, Johnny. Those nasty cameras are determined to add an easy 15-20 lbs. to your weight. Besides, only the personal touch will do. What better way to keep an eye on the ball?

Time for another fundraiser! Orcas and trans-Atlantic coffee dates aren't cheap. My grocery money will be in the mail tomorrow. Bless you for sharing the wonder of Orcas with us. (sniff!)

Where are the Friday Orca Blogging T-shirts? Ball watching doesn't pay for itself.

Johnny, Johnny, my dear Johnny. I told you that you better lay off the carbs if you want to keep your figure.

A girl has got to do what a girl has got to do,and beauty is painful. Look at me, I am one big beautiful pain in the you know what.

Remember if you want to keep Daddy Sullivan happy, you need to remain in top-top shape. Remember my famous internet personal ad specifically sad "no fats and no fems" and that includes "big girls".
And you have been looking like a really big girl Johnny.

Also, speaking of which, those routine hissy fits you are becoming so well known for having make you look so much less butch. Your friends have made similar comments over tea and crumpets at the Annual
Log Cabin Tea Dance.

That orca does resemble you in that tiny tux your wore when you fauned all over Katherine Harris, but I know it's not really you because his eyes are too far apart.
To be the real thing, the eyes must be spaced no more than 3/8ths of an inch.

This site is just plain mean. It's also dead-on hilarious, I'm afraid, and "Friday Orca Blogging" is an instant classic.

I thought I was the only one who noticed that. Not a pretty girl, that Johnny.

I think this deserves to go with some of the other pithy comments on the front page...

Every time I think you can't get any snarkier, you outdo yourself. Friday Orca blogging indeed (LMAO!!!).

And now the Canadians are mad at our Johnny A.

They don't know yet that Johnny doesn't make apologies. He demands apologies.

Hey Johnny, I think you just look fabulous! The San Juan Islands are glorious aren't they. You must've stayed at that fabulous gay men-only lodge I recommended. I know $700/night is expensive, but now that your popularity and world-wide influence have exploded to epic proportions I'm sure you can afford it.

Just wanted to say don't listen to those anonymous trolls filling your comments section. They don't even sign their names to their posts!! Can you believe it? Like they're just so anonymous. It really bugs me.

When you're over at Atrios' page to get a link for your next story check out his comments page. There are mean anonymous people slamming you there too.

And screw those damn Canadians anyways. They're just jealous that they don't get to fight for their rights everyday like you do; they've already been handed to them on a silver platter. Keep up the good work. JFB

No Monday Blog?
You must be needing money after a weekend of A-List schmoozing.
Here's another $100, because a great nation deserves the truth.
