It's the Friday in the middle of August. So here's a slideshow of whales

Sure why not?

YES, IT IS that time of the week again. While whales were in the news for sad reasons this week, what better way to celebrate their existence than to show them in the prime of their life.

When doing their thing, they can cause quite the splash (badum tish) and while us humans have to breathe through our boringly named ‘mouth’ or ‘nose’, they get a ‘blowhole’.

They can also be pretty huge and could, we reckon, take us – TheJournal.ie posse, and humans in general – in a fight… especially if we were in the water… and this was to happen:

With that in mind, you had better respect the whale. While you’re at it, respect the slideshow too.
