    And this week's Darwin award goes to: Suicidal trash eating whale.

    What a dum-dum, whales can't survive on plastic nor can they survive on beaches. Must have dropped out of whale elementary school. :rolleyes:

    Wait. How did I miss that the first time? Awesome name for a museum.

    You know things aren't going well when this guy shows interest in your situation.
