Whale unleashes ‘poonado’

I hate to think what that actually smells like.    Or tastes like…  


Revolting images have emerged of four divers becoming engulfed by a cloud of brown excrement while filming a sperm whale near Dominca in the Carribean.

Canadian photographer, Keri Wilk told Caters News Agency that the whale spun on its side and flapped its tail, creating a “poonado”.

“I had poop in my eyes, mouth, wetsuit, everywhere and I was soaked in it from head toe.”

“After a few waves of faeces were released and stirred vigorously by the whale, the water was like chocolate milk, I couldn’t see my hand when I held it in front of my face,” Mr Wilk told the agency

“I did take an extra long shower once I returned to shore later that day, just in case.”

Mr Wilk hasn’t heard of anyone else experiencing a “poonado” before and this could be the first photographic evidence of whales using excrement to defend themselves.

Could be a great euphemism for Dirty Politics – part 2.   Time for the Whale poonado!
