NEWSFLASH:.....dee dee dit dit dit dee dee dit dit dit.........

It has just been announced by Sir Rupert Fontescue, the Queens equerry, that the whale will now be taken to a casting foundry, where an exact replica will be cast in bronze.

The replica will then be taken by crane to Trafalgar square, where it will
sit on a large, ornate concrete base and form the fourth monument surrounding Nelsons Column.

The cost of this venture has been borne by a group of wealthy Japanese tourists, who are doing the whole thing as a tribute to the royal family.

The monument shall be known as "The Plinth of Whales."

That's more than interesting, Lord E., but was somehow to expect.

As well as this report by The Times: Whale's song for Europe hits hollow note again


... ooh, oooh :wink:

There are several possible reactions to that E but i'm not sure which is most appropriate...

Why not a cremation? Or at least a barbeque? It would cheer up all those distraught children, and at least there'd be enough to go around.

indeed. Actually probably a bad idea. We wouldn't have enough charcoal, and it would be certain to rain just as they tried to light it. Yes stuffed and mounted for you young Mr Whale.

And remember, Steve, that you store already some other stuff - which was recently in the headlines - in your garage!

that one's a bit too cryptic for me Walter, give us a clue Wink

Apologies to dead whale btw, it was female not male.

Actually its surprising how many people were very upset by the whale story. And now newspapers full of begging adverts from various charities, Save the Whales, Protect the Wildlife, etc etc, all trying to cash in on people's sorrow. Dont tell me they dont spot a good marketing oportunity when it arises.
