    Sea World San Diego has recently stated that they want to relase all their orcas to the wild, following a public storm of protests criticizing Sea Worlds orca husbandry. The orcas will be replaced by blue whales, according to an official spokesperon. PETA has expressed that they dont want to accept this either. And that they are going to demonstrate naked outside SeaWorlds gates to the day all captivity ends, and all people and animals are vegetarians walking around naked like they do:p

    Well, One great reason to go to San Diego and one giant reason to NOT go to San Diego. I think the bad out weighs the good!;)

    Who said anything about April fools day? This is deadly serious....:p:p:p:p:p Anyway, not all countries in the world stop joking around at 12pm. In Norway and many other countries we are crazy enough to celebrate it all day long!

    Hahaha. This is a good one. I think PETA would explode if Sea World released the orca to take in an even larger species of whale.

    Anyone been round already to see the blue whales? :D

    I can see those headlines tomorrow for the lucky and happy few that did manage to get in on the action today!: "We had a whale of a time at Sea World!" and "I did not know that blue whales could outgrow our pools, but they did!" or "We were in the lucky draw of those getting a preview and we could even take our rubber ducks with us!".

    Happy April Fools' Day and I salute ye all!

    I had no idea the English stopped in the afternoon, you learn something every day!

    I guess that means this isn't a joke. I wonder what the shows will be like an if they will incorporate the naked protesters...
