Jonah!‏

Talk about taking a very timely photo! Incredible, eh? – tkmorin

Funny and Interesting Stuff People Have Sent Me

This photo was taken at the entrance to Katlian Bay at the end of the road in Sitka, Alaska.

The whale is coming up to scoop up a mouthful of herring (the small fish seen at the surface around the kayak).

The kayaker is a local Sitka dentist. He apparently didn’t sustain any injuries from the terrifying experience.

The whale was just around the corner from the ferry terminal, and all the kayaker could think at the time was, “Paddle really fast!”

He is in the whale’s MOUTH!

    That picture is at least four years old. It is a photoshopped picture. For more information about the picture and story, see snopes.com: http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/whalekayak.asp

      Well now, that’s a disappointment. Not to mention embarrassing. But I do thank you. I’ll check things out a bit more next time. 🙂

        I don’t trust anything anymore, whether still or video. My distrust comes from New Year’s Eve December 31, 1999, when NBC came to us “live from Times Square.” Turns out that NBC was delaying the “live coverage” by about 15 seconds so they could remove some of their competitors’ advertising from billboards in Times Square. Couple that with my own skill with Photoshop and Corel VideoStudio, and my distrust of anything that has a “Wow!” factor to it causes me to go check snopes.com first.

          OMG I would have expected more from NBC. Well, I’ll be checking Snopes more often, that’s for sure! Thanks again! 🙂

            Exactly! That’s why I was watching NBC, because I expected more from them……….. Sadly…………..
