***Note: See disgusting update below***
He’s in captivity. As in Not Free.
Obviously he loves his captors and prefers not being free. In fact, he’s so grateful for his captive life, he wants to talk to his prison wardens and tell them all kinds of loving things, including how he wants to be just like them.
Every time I see the video below in one form or another – and its accompanying Blabbers telling the “Story,” I find myself fervently wishing some vigilante group shows up and frees this poor whale from its moronic captors.
The media and People- Who- Study- Things- on- Government- Grant- Money have been all a’giggle about NOC because someone decided that, since all creatures want to be just like humans –because humans are so special, — NOC has studied hard and learned to mimic human talking points just like what you might hear on FOX or MSNBC, or some such shit.
Yes that’s right. While NOC is making sounds similar to what any kid can do using a cardboard toilet paper roll, also known as a “Der Der,” America’s brightest people have taken time off from curing cancer and diabetes or solving world hunger to analyze what NOC has been saying, and they have concluded he’s mimicking his ‘superiors’ in awe and admiration.
Even though listening to NOC is a significant step up from listening to Chris Matthews, Sean Hannity or NBC’s mediocre Sympathy Hire, Luke Russert, I think this is moose poop. Just because the poor thing has a permanent smile affixed to his face, doesn’t mean he’s thrilled with his lot in life. A mortician can massage a smile onto a corpse too. For starters, this whale is probably so stressed out knowing he’s going to remain tanked by idiots for the rest of his miserable life so that People Who Study Things can stare at him day and night, he’s……well…..he’s Wailing, scuse the pun
Or just maybe that noise NOC makes does indeed mimic in yodle-fashion what stupid humans sound like to him no matter WHAT they are saying.
So my poll question is: What do you think NOC is actually saying here?
***Our update comes to us from our member Hugo
I was not sure how I felt about this beluga whale story because I’m not opposed to studying animal behavior and I assumed Noc was living in an aquarium. But I found an article that provides some details baout his capture and the research that he and other belugas were exposed to by the US Navy and Sea World. The whale and two others that were simultaneously captured and put into a resaerch program are all now dead. Here’s a link to the article.
Note that at the end it discusses why this video is now being publicized when the whale has been dead for a number of years. The author links the release to new attempts to import Belugas from Russia to the Georgia Aquarium after which some will end up in Sea Wolrd San Diego and the US Navy research program.
Indeed. And disgusting.
