Here’s To You, Mr. Help An Atlantic Right Whale Out

Two sport fishermen were out on the ocean, and spotted an Atlantic right whale cruising by, all tangled up in a rope. Right whales aren’t hunted any more, but there aren’t many of them around, and they still are in danger of being killed by boats hitting them, and entanglements like this one. Eventually the rope would probably cut right through their flesh. Adrian and Pat to the rescue!
No one would admit it, but it’s the same sort of person that helps a distressed animal in this fashion as the fellows that used to hunt them. They’re both a bit daring, and both knew and respected the animal, and valued it for its worth. It used to be worth a lot to a person to have its blubber and oil and ambergris and corset stays, and now it’s worth more to make our world that much more interesting by its very existence. People complaining outside a KFC never met a chicken, in my experience.
