Messing with Greenpeace
I'm at Target yesterday with the girlie. We get a few things and walk out, and I see a bunch of people in matching shirts...that say Greenpeace. I try to take an NFL halfback route...dive through the biggest hole and score. Girlie walks up to one and stops. I lose. Conversation goes like this:
GP: We are trying to save the whales! Do you like whales?
Me: Yep. I was stationed in Okinawa and tried it. It was delicious!
GP: **complete look of shock** You actually ATE whale?
Me: Of course. It's some of the best seafood I've ever had.
GP: Did you know all they eat is Krill?
Me: Yeah, it's like shrimp, which I also love. I'm sure that's why I like whale meat too!
At this point, 2 other GP members come over.
GP2: Did you know whale meat is the most toxic meat known to man?
Me: Maybe it is, but it tastes good. I'm sure I've eaten worse things for my health than whale. I can't wait to try it again!
Then they go off about the Japanese posing as researchers and how they are just poaching whales. I've watched whale wars on Discovery, and I know what these GP fools do.
They try to get the girlie to sign up, so I say "These guys are terrorists. They attack civilians for political gain. They ram their boats, use sonic warfare, gas bombs, and other tactics. They are terrorists. Two wrongs does not make a right."
GP: "The whalers aren't civilians! They are criminals!"
GP2: **look of horror and realization** "My fiancee is in Okinawa. I hope he doesn't come back and say he ate whale."
Too great! Good story. Sometimes the truth hurts doesn't it.
That is classic, would love to have observed that exchange!
For the record, I've never been to Oki, and I've never eaten whale.
I just you did not have the heart to tell them that you picked up items for your trip some ammo for hunting deer, elk and the spotted owl. Back-pack for you trip to Africa to hunt Lions, Tigers and Black Panthers?
What's the plan Captain?The plan is we have no plan that way they have no idea what our plan is...Thats why our plan will work

Of all the things her fiancee could be doing in Okinawa, I think eating whale meat should be the least of her worries.

Sounds like GP'ers are extreme PETA terrorists. Funny story.
I wonder if you said, "Yeah, whale tastes kinda like a cross between an eagle and a condor, it's all white meat, a little oily though.", they would have passed out!
We had a way to mess with Greenpeace, too. It was called 'Operation Waterfall'. You would be amazed at what 140 pounds of firemain pressure will do to a bunch of idiots trying to get too close to an aircraft carrier.
Cat Rat Dog Rattle snake Buffalo Beefalo Guinea pig Alligator Frog Bear Antelope Elk Moose Deer Squirrel Turtle.
Those are all thats ive eaten. I want to try raccoon and shark.
Sadly my dads got me beat by Monkey.
Hey, I lived in Okinawa and never ate whale that I know of. But I never inquired too much as to the exact ingedients.
Don't you just love messing with people and their "causes?"
