Actually, now I think about it...

(and I do...)

Perhaps this whale story isn't such a cute one, after all. Look how close it got to the Houses of Parliament, after all... Curious coincidence? Maybe not.

Considering the Government's crackdown on terror, and the Met's secretly-slipped-in shoot-to-kill policy, is the best response really for family crowds to gather billing and cooing at this surprise visitor?

It could, after all, be a Trojan, er, whale packed with Al Qaida explosives...?

Hmm. Very sad it now seems to be struggling deep down there in the water. I hope he/she survives and is looked after well, by the right people.
If it is indeed an innocent whale.

But we do know the species has form.
Whales were, of course, some of Hitler's biggest supporters.
They were all Nazis, they were at Nuremburg...
Or at least, so I once heard...

Trojan whale? Methinks it could indeed be a ploy to destroy central London! Are they really sure it isn't a tiny terrorist in a whale submarine gradually making its way closer to the MI5 building?

Glad I'm not the only suspicious one.

We're through the looking-glass here, people...

Might it all have been a subtle ploy to lure Japanese whale boats to their eventual capture up the Thames? Maybe not...

I think we should count ourselves lucky.....

A trojan from Wales? Whatever next!

Good link to the Pete 'n Dud sketch. I haven't seen enough of their comedy. Just remember their stupid songs about cancer. Dudley Moore is quite a pianist, my old man had a record of his playing jazz. Dig the piano scene in Arthur too... he's a funny guy.

The cancer songs are a little context-dependent (and few-other-contexts-friendly, I know...)
Dudley was indeed a glorious pianist, and a little harmed by his 'Cuddly Dudley' label as against ironic, iconic, iconoclastic Peter Cook image. Sort of like how McCartney will never be anywhere near as cool as Lennon, despite contributing equally valuably to the duo... But still.
I thought - funny...
