Wednesday Wipeout. Got A Whale Of A Tale To Tell Ya, Lads.

Uh-oh, this can't be good.
It's not photoshopped, gang.
From ABC: "Talk about a close call. A whale leapt out of the water and crash-landed on the deck of a boat off the coast of South Africa July 21, 2010. Sailing near Robben Island off the coast of Cape Town, Paloma Werner, 50, of the Cape Town Sailing Academy, and her partner Ralph Mothes watched the whale move toward their 10-meter vessel and breached 20 meters away. The whale disappeared under the water, before reappearing in the air. "Then I just saw this huge whale crash onto our yacht," Werner said. Fortunately, no one was injured, though the boat suffered damage. (Paloma Werner)"

A tourist on a boat nearby caught the moment when the whale breached the water next to the sailboat.

Harpoon Hannah was no where to be seen.


So long guys, and thanks for all the fish!
