Dead whale now haunts the Ritz


Posted by on Fri, August 26, 2005

The deflated, stinking carcass of a dead humpback whale, which lay on a Half Moon Bay beach for nearly a week before being carted off to deeper water, is now in a rocky alcove just north of the Ritz, according to the Mercury News.

Interesting quote from a tourist on Channel 2 news: “I don’t think it’s sad, I think it’s dirty. People come here for the environment which is so clean ...” Also complaints from business and lodge owners about the smell beng bad for business ...

What do they think is going out there under the waves? Like there’s bathrooms and graveyards for the whales? This could only create pressure for CCWD to extend the El Granada pipeline project offshore, Maybe the extra capacity of the SAM plant could be used to sanitize the nearby ocean water so no one is offended.

Please don’t give them ideas like that. The empire builders at CCWD will go around claiming that if don’t build the damn thing, then all of our houses will be in danger of burning down in a fire.

W.C. Fields understood that sentiment very well.

When asked why he didn’t drink water, he replied, “Because fish f*** in it.”
