Whale unleashes ‘poonado’

These articles are mandatory, for obvious reasons.  Also, it’s headline SB can relate to.


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!

    The whale poonado implies you attacking people with your own excrement. I thought dirty politics part 2 was more you throwing certain people’s excrement back at them.

    Waiting for the Greens to demand an enquiry no doubt they will want this whale severely sanctioned

      But but, it is organic poo, so surely that is a good thing? if anything this poo should be worth more money than non organic poo you know just like organic veges cost more than non organic ones ;)

    ‘Poonado’, great word, it’s right up there with ‘boondoggle’!

    Not sure if the whale was defending itself. Perhaps a classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time for the diver.

    • Murray Smith

      Yup, the whale may have just simply had a very bad curry the previous evening.

    This reminds me of a funny line from a cartoon movie where a Monkey in an upper class accent says, ‘ If you have any poo throw it now.’
    I have two new words in my vocabulary now. I know that Cam is planning to release a massive Poo-nami on the people who orchestrated Dirty Politics hehheh
    I expect Nicky Hager to be caught up in a massive Poonado. It is going to be a lot of fun for me personally to watch.

      Poo-nami, Poonado & Poocano……from all directions, we wait patiently ;-)

      I am sure you will get the biggest thrill from Poonado but we will not be far behind you.

    • Eiselmann

      getting the poo-pcorn ready………ugh that extra ‘o’

    • MaryLou

      I’m confused. Why does Cam feel you particularly, can relate to the headline?

      Madagascar was an excellent film.
